Exhibition: Hygge: the art of intimacy and simple acts
Hygge is a Danish word used when acknowledging a feeling or moment at ordinary or extraordinary as cosy, charming or special. It only requires consciousness, a certain slowness, and the ability to not just be present - but recognize and enjoy the present. Hygge is about an art of creating intimacy (either with yourself, friends and your home). While there's no one English word or simple definition to describe hygge, several can be used interchangeably to describe the idea of hygge such as cosiness, charm, happiness, 'contentness', security, familiarity, comfort, reassurance, kinship, and simpleness.
