Feeling your touch

Saturday 10.09.2022 14:00 – 16:00

Performance with Elodie Grethen

Festival Headquarters (GREEN DOOR artists space & gallery, Kempelengasse 8, 1100 Vienna)

In her photographic performance, Elodie Grethen questions our relation to strangers and touch. Elodie Grethen invites visitors to create a joint self portrait with her, posing together following a simple rule: physical contact must take place. How, where and how long is entirely determined by the stranger, who is given complete control over the process and is free to arrange their body – their own and the artist’ – as they see fit. Grethen complies with their instructions, surrendering power and control over her body and the image by letting them release the shutter. What emerges from the images is a poetic awkwardness of strangers getting to know each other through touching – a forced intimacy.
