Sleep with Me: a Series of Platonic Intimate Acts
Gallery 1010, Knoxville, TN
Sleep with Me explores Platonic Displays of intimacy (PDI) in public/private space. Is it possible to create spaces which invite love, play and tenderness, while testing the limits of empathy, trust and unspoken consent? Who will enter these spaces and who will avoid them? The work is an entry point for addressing anxiety around connection, asking "who is it safe to connect with?" Imagine a world where vulnerable humans cease to be prey. Imagine a world devoid of hyper-sexualized toxic-masculinity.
