Our Arms Grew Together is an autobiographical portrait of the love relationship between artists duo Marta & Kim. In a world that celebrates independency, they choose deliberately for interdependency.
Marta & Kim are in search of a physical metaphor of their relationship. This unfolds in an intimate, honest, almost documentary universe of what normally stays behind closed doors: the sensuality and vulnerability of becoming one body with two people. At the same time, it shows the discomfort of it: literally not being able to walk away from each other and the letting go of control and personal interest.
If ‘trusting you with my life’ is not only a metaphor, but a physical reality, then everything that is at stake becomes tangible. Do we dare to lose ourselves in a joint identity and depend on each other?
