Touching - Lina Scheynius

With Touching, Lina Scheynius exposes, re-exposes, superimposes film and bodies. The ancient sculpture is the starting point of a vibrant dialogue with her own body, a subtle alliance between the organic and the mineral, which her unique eye reveals here.

This series of unpublished photographs summons centuries of art in a contemporary gaze — entirely realized with film camera, it is nevertheless unbearable for our so prudish screens.

This very large book also offers a continuous literary whisper, a new gesture for Lina Scheynius, who weaves with the photographs a narrative that extends as much as it illuminates this total exposure.
