First loveLOV+U Exhibition.
Who am I with you?
LOV + U explores a relationship through moments that we remember with our bodies. Using simple strokes and colours, 2nd2Friend remixes gender tropes and pop-cultural imageries to create a character, 2ndGirl, who lives in the grey areas of intimacy. This character, they embody our own lived experiences of holding on to and letting go of who you are as we spend time with another person. The artist questions the control we have of our own selves: from falling blissfully in love at first sight, to validating or rejecting social expectations, to giving in to our own deep yet unknown desires. Together, these illustrations remind us of both the deeply human and truly out-of-this-world journey we call love.
