For its first exhibition cycle, Jardino's team is pleased to issue the following call for artists:
Intĭm ~ us
« The intimate is the world of the I that opens up to the encounters of life. »
Writer and philosopher
The period we are going through has seen a considerable upheaval in our relationships. Repeated phases of lockdown have disrupted our intimacy, both personal and relational. The recommended physical distancing has often been replaced by an injunction to social distancing as an antidote to what psychologist Joëlle Mignot has called the "virus of intimacy". The ubiquitous concern for our physical health based on a mechanical conception of our being has often overshadowed other vital needs, such as our mental well-being as well as our emotional, sensual and sexual needs.
In a context where the other appears as a vector of potential threat to our physical integrity, how to cultivate relational intimacy, this privileged space of sharing and surrender?
How to dare opening up to the other and let ourselves be vulnerable in a world where fear and mistrust seem to have conquered the collective imagination and colonized our subconscious?
What would be the new ways of connection, and the forms of expression of our affection and intimacy?
