Solo Exhibition, She Bam!, Spinnerei Leipzig
The exhibition »Kissing Without Penetration« deals with the meaning of closeness and distance, belonging and isolation in a globalized and atomized society in the highly digitized world. The portrait drawings show human upper bodies, people from our time, somehow connected and yet alone. Instead of faces, it is the hands and the folds of clothing that are speaking. Details keep appearing in thin and precise lines: connection tools, dating apps, WiFi symbols or old-fashioned Tamagotchis. Codes which inspire hope and bring it to a surreal and artificial environment. Both the fragmented hanging wallpaper and the only subversively perceptible sound collage of messenger sounds reinforce this feeling of separation or the search for a connection between paradise and nowhere.
