This research project proposes to explore tactile percpetion in art education. Through various workshops at the Contemporary Art Center (Geneva), in universities (Lausanne and Bordeaux), and in classes at public secondary school, I explore sensory learning contacting the art object. I invite participants to touch some of my art pieces and propose to establish a ‘sensitive dialogue’, as an exploratory educational approach: a two-way exchange between two art practices - mine and theirs - where each person’s art production responding to that of another. In this way, knowledge can be built within an interdependent relationship. This ‘dialogue’—partly non-verbal, passing through the manipulation of small, material art forms—progressively builds the sensitivity-maturity.

This long-term project is supported by the University of Bordeaux-Montaigne (FR), the HEP-Vaud_University of Teacher Education (CH), and Swiss universities.
