Soft spots are sensitive feelings I have towards my body. I learned to perceive this relationship as weakness, and at some point in my life forgot to value it. I can feel vulnerable exposing my soft spots so in order to protect them I started to adapt my behaviour, stopped listening to my body and started hiding soft spots.
The thesis is my journey where I explore different ways to stay with soft spots, meaning: Noticing soft spots, value them, rebuilding the relationship with them, getting comfortable with them, learning to love them and make them visible.
Now this thesis is published and the work is exhibited, it becomes part of the public. I consider sharing my journey of staying with soft spots as an act of resistance by taking up space for embracing sensitivity in a patriarchal society.
