Un_Touchable is a part of a recurring exhibition series, that is dedicated to exploring the medialization of sexuality, identity and intimacy. This year, The artists focus on the vulnerability of humans in the face of a pandemic; The term “untouchable” is often used concerning beauty, disease and/ or class. Something desirable that is represented virtually, unreachable across time and space (as in art or erotica), is also untouchable. The Untouchable exhibition conjures a restive and conflicted state of mind between desire, vulnerability, and fear.

A group of international artists circle the sense of uncertainty and also deja-vu that connect our time with earlier fragile periods by using video, photography, installation and other means to create an imaginative, associative nimbus where memory, imagination and speculation can converge in a free-floating way. In Untouchable, the works are given an open, respecting framework that gives free rein to the various works’ concerns and strong aesthetic and sensory impact. The joint emanations of the various artistic positions evoke a poignant, and pensive state of mind.

Responding to the current pandemic, the project is extended into the virtual realm with online manifestations such as virtual artist’s talks, video interviews, and social media projects addressing the increasing needs for accessibility and human connections.
