The Direction I Rub One Matters is a group exhibition by Ian Tee, Moses Tan, Zarina Muhammad and Zulkhairi Zulkiflee. The exhibition highlights how tactility possesses its own affect; it offers intimacy, comfort, security, and melancholy, among others.
The intensities provoked by cloth closely held against skin brings to the fore of our consciousness our desire for and fears of mutuality, shelter, protection, and isolation. The materiality of our optimistic longing can also be the instantiation of our troubling anxiety. Just as suede changes shade when brushed, the space between the clothed and unclothed, between body and body, can change in perceptible, contrapuntal ways.
