When an Olfactory Artist Loses Her Sense of Smell
An Interview with Josely Carvalho by Caro Verbeek, curator, art historian and sense museologist based in Netherlands
"Through emails and a Zoom-meeting with an ocean between us and isolated in our homes, I interviewed olfactory artist Josely Carvalho on her work and recent experiences with Covid-19. What happens when an award winning olfactory artist – and of course ‘simply’ a human being – loses her sense of smell?" (Caro Verbeek, in the site Futurist Scent, May 2, 2020)
"Smell emanates from the guts of my artwork – from the necessity to articulate issues, anxieties and questions through affections." (Josely Carvalho)
In my latest interview written by Caro Verbeek for the site Futurist Scent I discuss my olfaction research, my artwork and how Covid19 entered in my life as an artist.
