‘HOW DO YOU FEEL?’: A MULTIMEDIA WINDOW INSTALLATION
AT GLOBE ART POINT BY ONDI MADETE
3.11.-24.11. 2022

How Do You Feel? is a multisensory, multi-media installation by Ondi Madete exploring identity, empathy and human connection.

It’s impossible to ever put yourself in another person’s shoes. However, using five human senses we could try. The installation consists of eight subjects and eight portraits exploring identity through sight, touch, taste, scent, and sound. How Do You Feel? involves a chair, a screen, a journal and a table with incense, something to eat, and something to touch. For each multi-sensory portrait the audience is encouraged to immerse themselves in another through their senses and ask of themselves and the subject: how do you feel? Afterwards on a canvas by the chair the audience can draw, write, sketch, paint something, anything to express this feeling. The installation aims to explore empathy and connection.

About Ondiso Madete
I’m a Kenyan artist based in Pori, Finland. I love to explore the rich tapestry of human experience through music, poetry, short stories, film, photography and performance art. Creating art on my own or with different artists is exciting and gives birth to pieces that are nuanced and captivating. Nothing excites me more than diving into a project as a producer or a muse, an actor, director, creator or participant; or all of the above.

GAP WINDOW is a window exhibition project initiated by Globe Art Point in 2021. The concept was created for the members of GAP Creatives Database with an aim to provide a unique opportunity to exhibit and/or experiment with their own artistic work and ideas. The project does not follow any specific theme and it can be done in various forms, from painting directly on the windows through displaying poetry, paintings, photographs, illustrations to streaming media and digital art.
