Heralding an important paradigm shift away from postmodernism toward more intimate works of art, this expressive collection of contemporary art looks at love from all angles.
Featuring the Work of 11 artists, including Polly Borland and David Noonan, working in an array of media that combine photography, film, and video with collage, sculpture, and multimedia installation, this moving and dynamic collection explores how images convey feelings, memories, and sensorial experience. From playfully dressed-up bodies replete with sexual suggestion to imagery evoking the innocence of childhood, We Used to Talk about Love considers the variegated terrain of love - joy, elation, longing, desire, loss, and nostalgia. The diverse genres of writing in the book mirror the protean nature of love as it slides effortlessly between fiction and reality, image and memory.
