What does a turtle feel through the carapace?

Empathy and the ability to understand the situation of others is the theme of Eva Koťátková’s exhibition. Her dramatically staged installations are reminiscent of a cabinet of curiosities, referencing historical imagery and modern culture.

Koťátková investigates what arouses our emotions and how they can bring us together beyond the divisions of categorisation and hierarchies. The exhibition is an interdisciplinary art classroom.

Eva Koťátková / What Does a Turtle Feel Through the Carapace? is a collaboration between Bildmuseet and Kiasma, the Museum of Contemporary Art at the Finnish National Gallery in Helsinki. The central installation in the exhibition is created as a whole divided into two parts, one of which is exhibited at Bildmuseet and one at Kiasma.
