Hanneke Wetzer & Nadiah

Living Alone (Together)




Living Alone (Together)



During the pandemic, Hanneke Wetzer made the special series Living Alone (Together) about everyday scenes at home with a brand new roommate, Hanneke's ‘best friend forever’ (bff).

“There is a lockdown coming and you are single. You don’t have anyone to cuddle with during all those lonely months. What to do? Then you look for a partner in crime so that both can remain mentally healthy. Since flights were already cancelled, I was forced to send my new bff over by mail. Now that Nadiah is here we support each other and we share all the little moments of tedium and happiness.”

Hanneke Wetzer staged all kinds of domestic and intimate situations of herself with Nadiah, where it is not immediately clear that Nadiah was 'born as' a (sex) doll. The series, which continues still on instagram (@me_and_my_dollfriend), shows an intimate lockdown diary of true companionship.
