We used to talk about love - Balnaves contemporary: photomedia
Is it possible to surmise the mystery of love or to reveal the emotions it engenders?
From Polly Borland’s playfully dressed-up bodies, replete with sexual suggestion, to Tim Silver’s disintegrating sculpture of a stargazing young man, this exhibition considers the variegated terrain of love’s language – joy, elation, longing, loss, melancholia and memory.
For the first time since 1988, the Belgiorno-Nettis galleries at the Art Gallery of NSW will be architecturally reconsidered to take the viewer on a spatial and emotional journey through love’s language, from beginning to end.
The exhibition includes photography, photomedia, video, collage, sculpture and installation.
