mimoOs, ZDRUHESTRANY and Sonja Pregrad
Touch is our primary sense. Touch is dangerous. Touch is what is at stake today. In making this work we kept diaries of touches for nine months, through the time of the pandemic. In language, there are only a few words for describing touch and even less for describing the experience of being touched, so we invented ways to describe and move our experiences. Rather than only seeing these, you can allow yourself to be affected viscerally and stay for a while with this way of engagement with your surroundings.
Imagine a group of youngsters in a sports hall, dressed uniform-like. A sports hall is a place of discipline. Discipline creates beautiful shapes. What if in our primary schools we practiced the discipline of sensitivity? They are close to each other, but not yet touching. They are to build together something yet unseen. They are singing an ode to softness.
