The body of work showing in the Confluentés Sea emerged out of an engagement 
with the senses of touch, the haptic and 'smooth space'. Touch is the most tangible 
of our senses. We rely on it to calibrate what we see and hear. Despite this an 
exorbitant privileging of sight has developed within Western thought and knowledge 
that has "actively forgotten and deliberately written touch out of our cultural history". 
This exhibition introduces a major body of work by Tim Mosely that initiates 
a re/membering of touch. It is the first in a series of three exhibitions that presents 
artwork he has produced during his PhD candidature.
