DESCRIPTION

It's not me, It's you> the couple show

Relationships are a natural element of life, and a romantic bond between two artists can lead to fulfilling and complex collaborations. Work, love and creativity are closely interwoven in these intense relationships. Communication and trust are necessary for both the creation of art and love. Art, like love, opens new and inspiring worlds. Ultimately, a couples’ alliance proves to be the ideal alchemy for love and creativity.

“It’s Not Me It’s You” explores romance in art, presenting collaborations by 11 pairs of talented art makers. By creating an amalgam of practice and approach, the archetype of the artist-couple is investigated. This show reveals the cross-fertilisation of concepts and techniques between separate art makers, to make a unified piece of art. Each piece demonstrates collaborative compatibility and addresses the role of compromise in the complex balance of partnership.
