The power of touch is that we have to give and take at the same time, you can't touch someone without being touched yourself.

Coming together, hugging and sitting side by side in the open air. These are all things that were so natural to us, but they are not anymore. For our own safety and the safety of others we are keeping distance, physical distance. The corona crisis has a big influence on our lives and mood, because as a human being we are not made to go through life without physical touch. If we don’t touch in a long time this can cause skin hunger, a strong longing for human touch.

In my work ‘Geraakt’, I tell intimate stories in times where we have to miss this kind of close contact. Stories that comfort, connect and take you on a journey, just for a moment.
