Intimacy in Four Acts is a project by a young British artist Lidija Kononenko, dedicated to meticulous study of the influence that emotions have on facial expressions. Works on the anatomy of face, Charles Darwin’s and Paul Ekman’s research works in the field of physiognomy, and various self-study textbooks in different spheres became the starting point for Lidija in writing scripts for the series of video performances that constitute her project. Each part of the performance is written in advance as a satirical step-by-step manual.
