From Polly Borland’s playfully dressed-up bodies, replete with sexual suggestion, to Tim Silver’s disintegrating sculpture of a stargazing young man, this exhibition considers the variegated terrain of love’s language – joy, elation, longing, loss, melancholia and memory.

For the first time since 1988, the Belgiorno-Nettis galleries at the Art Gallery of NSW will be architecturally reconsidered to take the viewer on a spatial and emotional journey through love’s language, from beginning to end.

The exhibition includes photography, photomedia, video, collage, sculpture and installation with works by Polly Borland (USA/Aus), Eliza Hutchison (Vic), Paul Knight (UK/Aus), Angelica Mesiti (France/Aus), David Noonan (UK/Aus), David Rosetzky (Vic), Darren Sylvester (Vic), Tim Silver (NSW), Glenn Sloggett (Vic), Grant Stevens (QLD) and Justene Williams (NSW).
