Ghada Amer "Ken Loves Barbie, Barbie Loves Ken"
Fashion week is over in NYC, so after after being really busy for that week I can now relax back into my routine(or at least what I am trying to make a routine) which is making at least one thing a week, starting next week. This week is being cut short to go to my great friend Megan's wedding in North Carolina.
I have been thinking about a series about the idea of love and what that means since seeing Ghada Amer's exhibit Love Has No End at the Brooklyn museum a couple of months ago. I have been interested in her work for about five years and until this exhibit had never seen a work of hers in person. I found myself feeling a connection to the title of the exhibit, I started to think about what the meaning the actual words Love Has No End. I went to hear a lecture given by Amer in which she spoke of fairy tales not existing as truths, and the idea of stories having a beginning middle and end. I started thinking about what the meaning of love and the ending of love. I like the play on words and I like that it makes me think.
