This artist will hold her exhibition in total darkness so others experience the world of the blind

January 27, 2018

Victoria Claire is an artist with a degenerative eye disease that affects her vision completely.

Her art work will be displayed as part of a unique art exhibition in Herne Bay, England.

The exhibition will be called A Sixth Sense and will start from 6 February to 18 February. The exhibition is based on the theme of inclusion and will be held in complete darkness.

Victoria Claire makes sculptures and the visitors will be allowed to feel them in the darkness irrespective of their vision abilities.

The aim is to create understanding and awareness in people who can see about the dark world that the visually impaired live in.

The exhibition visitors will enter a black room in dark, guided by a tactile path and guide rope, and experience six sculptures, each representing a different sense.
