Intimate Moments reveals the invisible link established between Japan and the Democratic Republic of the Congo when the atomic bomb exploded in Hiroshima in 1945. This bomb contained uranium extracted from the Shinkolobwe mines in the Belgian Congo.
Pills are used in this work as the metaphor of the uranium to establish a new link between Japan and Congo, between the artist and the city of Hiroshima and between the artist and the victims of the explosion. These tablets are also used as a way of relieving the earth from the bad behaviors of the humankind.
