LoveHeart: the sequel by Gillian Hawkins and Patricia Sharman
In LoveHeart: The Sequel, both artists examined the reality of relationships, especially the mythology of happiness, which breaks down from illusion into self-delusion, and how that impacts emotionally, by making the body vulnerable. The work examined 'effective ways' of coming to terms with new, clearer, realities. Artist information: Artspace and Gillian Hawkins' website.
