safe-keeping (custodia): artistic research
In Empathic Vision (2005) Jill Bennett identifies affect as a key aspect of the dynamic between artwork and spectator, and identifies that artworks that do not aim to engender a realist interpretation or use representation often engender an affective response which is not reliant on emotional identification with the subject of the artwork. Instead, an affective response arises from ‘direct engagement with sensation as it is registered in the work’ (Bennett 2005: 7).
