Love Sick

16 Oct 2010 - 30 Jan 2011

Love Sick brought together the work of four young female artists who were (re)writing some of their own romantic fictions.

Romance, with its association to rom-coms, red roses and raunchy chic-lit, has long been considered feminine territory. Yet historically, men have been the authors of the epic love stories told through literature and the arts.

With wit and sensitivity, Tatjana Plitt, Emma Thomson, Lilly McElroy and Laurel Nakadate fused genuine optimism and bittersweet cynicism in a playful interrogation of contemporary narratives of romance.
