Press Release, September 2018
Intimacy can be found in the warmth of the home and in a meeting between people. It has to do with closeness and familiarity. In today’s hectic disconnected world, one might fear that intimacy is precisely what we are lacking. Confidentiality and communication have been replaced with us staring down our phones, swiping our way through love and replacing vulnerability with “u ok hun?”.
The group exhibition ‘INTIMATE NARRATIVES’ explores the many facets of intimacy through photography - from opening up your home to baring your inner self to the lens. And while the narratives behind might vary, the underlying drive is all too human: We all want to be understood once we crack the door open. From November 17-28 we invite the audience inside an apartment in Prenzlauer Berg to rediscover and perhaps reconsider the volatile but vital role of intimacy.
Throughout the exhibition, the apartment will not only be inhabited, but also provide the framework for a number of events based around the theme of intimacy, from performances and readings to music sessions. The audience is invited to explore the rooms of the apartment - from the kitchen to the bedroom - that aim to contextualize and challenge the works presented. The exhibiting photographers are Jacob Cook (GB), Thomas Suchy (DK), Michaela Maier (DE) and Eva Brunner (CH). The exhibition is curated by Patricia Breinholm Nielsen (DK) with event programme by Michaela Maier.
Opening: Saturday 17th of November, 7pm.
Exhibition period: 17th-28th of November 2018.
Opening hours: 1-8pm, on event-nights: 1-10pm.
