A Symbolic Intimacy

Colleen Toledano’s work seem to explore the relationship between our body and the immediate forces in which it dwells. In the coalescing of nature into man-made or human with nature, the boundaries of each meaning dissolve, and a sense of symbolic intimacy is achieved. There seem to be a quest to explore and interrogate one sense of agency within the space, the power over one’s social body and the relation one has with the natural world in the hopes of fulfilling a deep yearning for improvements.
