Eye in Hand – Esref Armagan

esraf_02
Documentary about the blind Turkish artist Esref Armagan. Although he was born completely without eyes and never has been able to see, he taught himself to draw and paint at the age of six.

His abilities have made scientists question our understanding of vision and three dimensional space. When invited to Manifesta – one of Europe’s most prestigious cultural events – Armagan challenges the world of art and a society increasingly dependent on visuality, while our interpretation of the world appears to be a question of perception – through touch or vision.
