Let me relax you by touching works of art

In collaboration with the ASMR artist Behind The Moons
A production by Studio 13/16 – Centre Pompidou

Let me relax you by touching works of art convokes ASMR in order to experiment with post-internet artworks from the point of view of their manipulation and their power of relaxation. Caroline Delieutraz have entrusted works – hers and those of several artists – to Behind the Moons, the pseudonym of an ASMR artist who shares their videos with a large online community. Using different techniques specific to this practice, they explore their soothing potential.

By hijacking the classic prohibition of “touching artworks”, Let me relax you by touching works of art is a reaction to the anxiety-provoking context of the pandemic and the closing of exhibitions. The project plays with the constraints imposed by the current situation and puts the body and physical sensations back at the heart of the art experience in a way that is as strange as it is new.
