Liquid Architectural Gestures (Confabulations)
11:00-12:30 - Aslıhan Şenel and Bihter Almaç
In the first confabulation session, the Care Pavilion aims to focus on body-minded architectural gestures that urge intimacies between subjects and objects of design through the liquefaction of materials, sticky and slippery contacts between materials and bodies, continuous bodily interaction, and stories of lived and imagined care practices.
The second part of the confabulation session is a conversation of three and many, a reflection in the imagination where the critical response to the fluctuating bodies of care shapes its trajectories.
Part of the Fluctuating Bodies of Care programme presented by the Care Pavilion.
Fluctuating Bodies of Care re-imagines hammam as a feminine care space and offers architectural gestures that urge intimacies between subjects and objects of design through a wet and hot undoing of architecture, which includes stories around spatial practices of feminine care, liquefaction of architecture, and sticky and slippery contacts between materials and bodies.
