'Poetry Den' is a performative work in which a different way of reading poetry is explored. Visitors are invited, one at a time, to enter the den which consists a small space with two chairs, a table and a candle. In this intimate setting love poetry is read to the audience while softly touching them with their consent.
In this way a different situation of experiencing poetry is created. Especially after COVID-19 there is a need of getting used again to physical contact and searching for what that means in our life and how it influences our perception of living.
In combination with the layer of love poetry the question of what and how we perceive as intimate is emerging.
