The video installation “The touch of proximity” presents two bodies performing an endless cyclical action that develops at their own slow and suspended rhythm. As breath does, it is a cycle that inhales and exhales, expands and contracts, following a series of micro events contained inside a sustained scheme that swings between closeness and distance, opening up the possibility for a touch without physical contact, in proximity. A touching that never gets to culminate but nevertheless becomes eternal, resulting in two bodies in a state of constant vulnerability and exposure, open to each other but alien to themselves.
