Unable to Think Without Touching

Featuring artists who combine physical and digital approaches in the making and sharing of their art; connecting people through embodied experiences of the world.


Unable to Think Without Touching looks at the importance of bodily experiences and the use of digital technologies to connect with other people through the pandemic and beyond.

The relationship between our bodies and our environment may have changed through the pandemic and through lockdown, but what does the end of lockdown signify for people living with chronic illness, physical disabilities and mental health conditions, some of whom were already living in a state of isolation pre-pandemic? The exhibition features four artists who have developed inspiring artistic projects born out of the constraints and limitations of isolation and illness.

Curated by Bethlem Gallery and hosted at the ORTUS in Denmark Hill, this exhibition is free and open to the public from 8:00am to 4:00pm Monday to Friday.
