Closeness examines ways we are connected with each other, approach or leave one another, in what way ties exist, just discovered or experienced for a long time. The protagonists sit in front of a black curtain and create an ever changing mode of conduct that I accompany as a silent witness.

The photographic images may open the floor for a discussion on art historical references, physis, socio-political perceptions and a spirituality that is anchored in the applied arts over centuries. I understand Closeness as a valuable lens through which to look at fundamental changes in our society, an open space to ruminate over human interaction and its value to our own existence.

Closeness was presented at Hong Kong Arts Center | Goethe Gallery & Black Box Studio, Wan Chai HK and Künstlerhaus Vienna AT.
