For their first collaboration Krzysztof Honowski and Peter Cant drew inspiration from the words and life of the gay Greek poet Constantine Cavafy and the gay British poet of the cinema Derek Jarman. Cavafy was born in Alexandria in 1863 and died there in 1933, whereas Jarman was born in Northwood and died in London in 1994.

Through their words we thought forward to the present day and to the contemporary condition of intimacy through image and how it is not enough.
