Losing Touch 2020

“Losing touch” is a reflection about the impossibility of touching and being touched. Five magnets are placed at the end of each finger creating unintentionally tensions and involuntary movements.

In a pandemic world our relationship with the environment is profoundly affected. Losing touch wants to reflect on the effects of the social distance measures on our bodies and feelings. Using protective equipment is directly affecting our sensorial life generating a new personal and common poetic and critical reflection on the relationship with the environment. The gloves are acting as mediators of our scents making us more aware of the limits and is becoming a threat within the forms of contact and proximity.

Selected for the Sala Art Jove 2020 and the Ten Little Indians + critic (MLAC ; KHLAB, online show, Italy)
