How can we be intimate without being intimate?
In a time where physical intimacy is perceived a threat rather than a natural act of expression, The Open Bookshow would like to invite you to think about alternative forms of intimacy. What different meanings can we attach to the concept? And what is the effect of these different perceptions? Is intimacy necessarily a relational concept, or can it develop in an individual context as well? How can we find intimacy in the mundane?
This exhibition proposes five alternate perceptions of intimacy in relation to identity:
Intimacy in the process of synchronizing rhythm and movement in collectivity; Intimacy in being together in the unknown, waiting for answers; Intimacy in the form of authenticity; Intimacy in being; Intimacy in being together in solitude.
In collaboration with Anne Jonker, Catelijne Boele, Daphne Reijtenbagh, Tara Beije.
