"Extimacy" Juliette Blightman at Kunsthalle Bern
One can experience events in a public space that appear intimate. More and more private things are being taken out of the protected space of the home and put on display. People expose themselves in ways that until recently were deemed awkward, but now appear normal to some. The border between the spheres is apparently becoming more fluid. The political slogan that the private is political has been overtaken by a reality that can hardly be grasped by the distinction between private and public anymore. Yet the two spheres still exist, albeit in a form that is almost inextricably connected.
