Clara Jo: Mirror-Touch

27 January - 27 March 2022

Clara Jo’s solo exhibition Mirror-Touch consists of complex, immersive video installations that entangle the senses and constructed sociopolitical relationships embedded within human experience, while engaging with sensitive historical and ontological narratives.

The exhibition’s title is borrowed from psychology, describing a rare experience of tactile sensation on one’s body induced by seeing someone else being touched. In the context of the exhibition, the idea of “mirror-touch” stands as a strong metaphor or desire for empathy —a key notion in Jo’s oeuvre.
