We Used to Talk About Love: Balnaves Contemporary Photomedia

Love is whimsy and love is blind, or so they say. From a conversation between four friends, to couples embracing, to a star-gazing young man crumbling before your eyes, We used to talk about love contemplates the diverse terrain of love joy and elation, sex and flesh, desire and rejection, crushing endings, melancholia and memory, nostalgia and loss. We used to talk about love features the work of eleven artists Polly Borland, Eliza Hutchison, Paul Knight, Angelica Mesiti, David Noonan, David Rosetzky, Tim Silver, Glenn Sloggett, Grant Stevens, Darren Sylvester and Justene Williams. Collectively their work reveals a paradigm shift away from postmodernism towards the intimate in art practice. The artists all work in the field of photomedia covering photography, film and video but also combined with collage, sculpture and installation art.
