Henri Hütt’s solo exhibition Romantic Loneliness continues his series of staged spaces. This time the focus centres around the border between the visible and the apparent.


“The city resonates around me. I am alone, accompanied by the familiar feeling of loneliness and that’s how it should stay forever. There is too little time, I have to experience everything, manage to accomplish double plans, arrange double meetings, in order to be alone. Unknown environments distort dimensions and I am moving step by step towards an unreachable horizon. Later on, before entering the reality zone, I am walking in the dawn along empty streets and I feel the irresistibly strong feeling that I would like to share it with others…”


Why, on the other hand, does it seem so wrong?

What happens when one shares something with others?

What do they get from sharing the experience?

What is worth sharing?

Am I then still alone?
