Unbearably Close is an exploration of breath, materiality and the natural/unnatural divide. An invitation to engage with the man-made, the soft, puckered and malleable. Forms in flux, pushing and folding against the walls, competing for space, then, giving over to gravity and sleep. Human determination despite our fleshy fragility might be recognised in this unnatural and imperishable plastic gaining stretch marks and split seam orifices. It’s close but also “other”.
