In the here and now, a meeting took place, an event between layers in time.
Moments of 'Kairos' glimpsed through 'Chronos' - hints of eternity through our temporal lenses.
By attending to the sensorial exploration of skin, unfolding our relationship to a layer of protection we tune towards what we cannot leave behind and the impossibility of being absent from our envelope.
By examining weight, continuity, linearity and intimacy the work alludes to cycles of impossible utopias intertwined with longing, time loops and the never-ending process of healing and adjusting.
