Throp, Mo (2004) Love Stories. [Show/Exhibition]
|Type of Research:||Show/Exhibition|
Love Stories is a two-screen video installed in the West Gallery of the Wallace Collection, London. It explores questions of romantic love as an impossible desire for the other. Using clips from movies, it explores how love-stories continue to define the contemporary subject in culture. The process of sexuation enacted in the artwork is related to desire, fantasy and jouissance and remains disruptive of the social order in the context of this artwork. It is purely libidinous and works outside the economy of procreation (capitalism and the family); it opens up the gap in the symbolic, accentuating the fact that phantasy is always at play; to produce for the viewer an experience of the self that is in flux and not submitted to the law.
