According to its title, ‘L’amour’, the project is aimed to reflect on the phenomenon of love, how it may exist nowadays and how it may be currently understood. The project will be hosted in BDSM lounge in order to have a certain aesthetical background which is usually associated with strong physical sensations, emotional tensions, something marginal and even obscene. Along with this, BDSM may also be connected with romance, sensitive dialogue and even love. So what is love? Is it just simply “Baby don’t hurt me” or maybe just the opposite?.. What if this sense may only exist in the old-fashioned bourgeois world, and what we all feel to each other is something completely different? Or maybe it is up to us that love is rediscovered and starts being open towards the ones seeking it?
