Love is the extremely difficult realisation that someone other than oneself is real

    Installation, Performance, Photography, Sculpure, Video, Sound

    Solo exhibition In collaboration with Zack Helwa. This definition is in itself a formula; A tragic, painful realisation that we are separate, we are alone, and that our existence is a mortal one. The formula for "Love is..." departure from the ideal we have imagined, ingested and devised and to embark on the painful exercise of overcoming one’s flawed self.
    The formula for love is a process of acceptance. Acceptance of separation, acceptance of The Void acceptance that there is no pre-existing harmony in which we can simply step into. Oneself is I and falling in love makes us realise what can never be understood in ourself. Alone in our sleep the process of acceptance is like the process of waking up, it happens again and again and we cannot say when it begins and ends. The mechanism for love is a tragic acceptance, one filled with joy and exhilaration, one filled with longing and loneliness, one that gives you a chance to see yourself in your best and worst capacities.
