The skin is faster than the word.
Intimacy is a ritual, an opening for creating a world according to your own rules. Intimacy is a space of introspection through sensory experiences and a space of sharing on the level of immediate response through skin... In „time of administration“(Negri) and „branded patterning of existence“ (Holmes), it opens way for productive tensions of the unexpected and the singular. It can also be seen as a critical force in society and culture, a stand against marginalization, stereotypes, ignorance, homogenization and bureaucracy. This exhibition presents the selection of artworks by younger generation of women artists in Bosnia-Herzegovina dealing with the intimate rituals as the ways of living-with and changing-with.
