Sign the Olfactory Art Manifest

La-Pittura-Dei-Suoni-Rumori-Odori-1-webOn August 11th, 101 years after the manifest of Carlo Carra “La Pittura dei suoni, rumori, odori: Manifesto futurista” [The Painting of Sounds, Noises, Smells: Futurist Manifesto], Peter de Cupere will sign the Olfactory art manifest with his own smell which he has developed over the past 2 years through distillation of his bodily smells. After two years of intensively collecting his bodily smells and distilling these, he has only a small bottle ‘Own Smell’ at my disposal. This smell extract will be the ink to sign the manifest.

VIDEO INVISIBLE (SCENT) PAINTINGS in 'Museum in Motion', Marta - Herford



Peter de Cupere presented his Invisible (SCENT) Paintings using the scratch & sniff technology. The scent gives in relation to the title of the painting a certain context. Only by scratching the surface and smelling the scent on your fingers you understand the meaning of the title.
