Intimacy
Intimacy evolved from the previous series, The Violence of Feeling, and it continues to investigate the complexity of human feelings in the context of intimate interactions between people. Pleasure, desire, joy, affection, submission, dominance, nostalgia, longing, and loneliness are often found juxtaposed in these physical and emotional relationships formed between two or more people. Gender is irrelevant here, for these feelings are experienced by everyone in every possible relationship with another human being, regardless of its nature. Intimate relationships are both a place of connection, a blissful shelter from the pains of life, a therapeutic zone, as well as a battlefield where we fight for our independence, dominance or reconciliation.
