A series of suggestions# 1:  'The common texture is our body' 
Collaboration between Kinga Jaczewska and researcher Leonie Persyn. 

The common texture is our body provides an insight to the working process of Kinga Jaczewska and Leonie Persyn. It showcases a collage of the materials they have been playing with over the last years. It is a momentary constellation, a snapshot of a dialogue that keeps evolving over time and through which certain patterns and gradations in thinking and practice reveal.. It is both a de- and a recontextualization of thoughts and imaginations. It is an attempt to destabilize and reorient their habits toward new possibilities and questions.


The common texture is our body aims to turn barriers into suggestions to work with in the future. In five different folders Kinga Jaczewska and Leonie Persyn explore five materials that frequently cross their practice and thinking. The different textures, characteristics and poetics of those carefully selected materials unfold multiple variations of their work.


The common texture is our body gives an impression of how Kinga Jaczewska and Leonie Persyn allow themselves to incorporate hesitation and doubts in their research practice and dialog in order to share ideas, dreams and thoughts with each other and an audience.
