Tenzing Barshee (born 1983) is an independant writer and a curator at Sundogs in Paris. In Rio de Janeiro, he reflects on how the idea of „touching and being touched“ can assist and complicate the displacement of one‘s own body. Following different cues, he approaches people and places with a determined willingness to engage, paired with the melancholy inherent to the memory of a childlike curiosity.
