Touchable Distance

EXHIBITION - Ў Gallery, Minsk, Belarus


Recently, we have all been forced into a new format of interaction with reality and each other. This format has led to the frustration and rethinking of familiar concepts, increased fears and anxieties, and complete change in life and behavior. Breaking our usual tactile connections made us access the network constantly, and all the "touching" connections turned into online-connects. To survive, it became necessary to maintain social distance as to be isolated, but still remain visible and sustain contacts.

«These strange times» caused us to slow down and think about what we really need most: love, intimacy, the importance of tactile sensations and warmth. Also physical presence and communication with loved ones, mutual support and assistance. On a face of it simple human needs.

Unknown. Uncertainty. Inescapability. Loneliness. Insanity. Nonsense. Stress. Anxiety. Masks. Deprivation of Liberty. Plague. Disease. Fear of suffocation and all other shades of horror. The desire to hide. The apocalypse. Hell. /Deceleration. Reflexion. Privacy. Solidarity. Creation of a new. Mutual assistance. The desire to breathe freely. Creativity. New meanings. Awakening. Release. Understanding. Value. How did the relationships between these powerful words and our attitude towards the external and internal perceptions change our worldview? Has something changed in principle?

Topp & Dubio show the video´Am I Flag?´.
