“Sensate FLOW” is an exhibition curated and created by Marie Cole. She celebrates and pays homage to the black sensual female body; one to be vulnerable, cherished, and ever-evolving.
The exhibition presents bodies that take shape of a sensate being. A designed species that is connected with their sensory faculties through the body.
The Sensates reveal themselves to us through their gaze; ´WHAT PLEASURE CAN FEEL LIKE ?´
Marie Cole (she/her) is a newly established Visual artist based in Oslo, Norway. She has exhibited in 2022 at Open Out festival and Oslo Negative.
Her artistic practice explores and examines identity and the inherent narrative that society and family project on her body.
Self-portrait and its deconstruction have her in a direct dialogue with the internalised colonial male gaze. Self-portraiture allows the artist to discover and embody versions of her identity that are foreign and familiar.
Cole is currently working with assemblage though textile such as skai, cotton, velvet and African wax print. These pieces creates new images inspired by photographs of African women during colonial times and self-portrait diary drawings.
