Beyond Sight showcases in Burnie Tasmania

Beyond Sight is an inclusive multi-sensory exhibition in which visitors can explore the artworks through touch, sound, smell, sight and imagination.

This exhibition incorporates three key elements: the multi-sensory artworks and installations which can be explored through various senses, an audio-visual presentation of interviews about the lived experience of blindness within a vision-centric culture and the opportunity for audience members to be creative themselves.

Artist Katrin Terton with Geoff Munck who developed a unique technique to understand how the power of language makes it possible for the blind to see the visual.

Katrin’s passion

Sunshine Coast artist Katrin Terton creates work that is accessible for visitors of all abilities with particular regard to people with low or no vision.

With a background in art therapy, her practice is conceptual, comprising sculptural works created principally from organic or salvaged materials and found objects. She intends to instil thoughts and generate conversation about the built and natural environment.

The exhibition is informed by Katrin’s ambition to create non-prescriptive works to encourage the audience to interpret each piece through the lens of their respective individual biographies and imaginations.
