48 Stunden Neukölln
ReTramp Gallery, Berlin
With Pressing Matters, I intended to address a number of the lasting social impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic: loss of closeness, connection, and physical touch. Over the festival weekend, workshop participants volunteered to scan parts of their body by pressing themselves against a flat-bed scanner outside of ReTramp Gallery. The workshop was concluded after the window space of the gallery was filled with the resulting A4 black and white prints.
