Now, more than ever, we are without social distractions and are given space to observe, to desire and to dream.
Inspired by the title of a Wim Wenders film, Faraway, So Close! 1993, this selection of artworks brings into focus the separateness of living and considers the rewriting of intimacy in our digital age; inviting us to reach out, empathise, and to dive into the feelings of our own human emotion.
Isolated in our own private worlds, individuals are coming to terms with the new ways of living. The frantic rush of life has slowed down and we take a breath, a pause, a moment to reflect and observe one another at an orbit. Through shared experiences we are together - so close, yet so far away - existing in a world where intimacy and the power of the human touch have been altered.
