Opening Night – ‘Sweethearts’ by Phebe Schmidt

It was a great turn out for the opening of Phebe Schmidt’s Sweethearts – thanks to all who joined us.

The show features nine large-scale photographs and an installation, inspired by softcore porn and the archetypal heroine of Mills and Boon romance, examining common conceptions of beauty, gender and ageing as well as self-love and self-care. Schmidt’s characters perform for an anonymous multiplicitous audience rather than one (male) hero character. 

The crowd surrounded the large, velvety sweetheart bed in the centre of the gallery. ❤️

Sweethearts continues until Saturday August 6.

Love, LD
