Together Alone – part II a part III

Yana Reutova and coll.

09. 04.
La Fabrika

How to cope with the burden of loneliness? How to explain it? And why is it sometimes strongest when we are surrounded by people? Even when we are together, in the end we are each on our own in life.

What will unexpected meetings and crossing fates bring? The triptych reflects the author’s chance encounters with various artists during two years in Prague, where she fled before the war.

Part II. – Invisible Traces

Fingerprints, a tangle of inconspicuous lines, hiding our uniqueness and genetic heritage. Invisible traces, unconsciously left in our surroundings, on things and people. We are covered by them too. Others have left them on us, on the surface, but also inside, as fleeting evidence of an experienced closeness. We create these invisible connections every day; we are the bearers of them, either unwittingly or by our own will.

Part  III. –  Paradoxical Bodies

In the realm of the human body’s intricate essence,adrenaline and endorphins take center stage, harmonizing to define our physiological and emotional crescendos. They are the protagonists of an ongoing drama within us, where the balance and interplay between these two hormones are essential.
