Collection of Lovers VOL.I (book)
Among Raquel André 109 lovers one said: “sometimes time takes time”. How much time do we need to share intimacy? And to activate a fiction within it? Raquel André set up encounters with strangers in houses she doesn't know. The principle is to share an intimate moment, and take at least one photo that proves it. This book holds the first 3 years of this process (2014-2016) in several portuguese cities and abroad. Colection of Lovers Vol I holds a moment in tempo and depicts a collection of a history of intimacy. This first volume wants to save the ephemeral contained in an encounter and offer a gift to time.
With an invitation from Teatro Nacional D.Maria II, in 2017 Raquel André edited the first volume of the Collection of Lovers.
A catalog of photographs of the 109 meetings with strangers she held between 2014 and 2016.
For this edition she invited the lovers Gregório Duvivier and Tiago Rodrigues to write about their meetings.
