Alex Baczynski-Jenkins, Federico, 2015. Performance at Acts of Translation, MMAG Foundation, Amman, Jordan, 2018. Photographs: Yanone.


Federico by Alex Bacyzsńki-Jenkins is a minimal choreography for touch between two performers. The figures formed between the hands of the performers are at times recognisable as an intimate touch and at times abstract figures of relationality and entanglement. This is a choreography of desire in the smallest scale, that mobiles affect and sensuality, as a means for a queer archive of touch.
