What we talk about when we talk about love / Plymouth tells love
Sloggett and son, 140 Union Street, Stonehouse, Plymouth PL13HL
One of the first things I noticed when I moved to Plymouth were adult couples holding hands in the streets. I was surprised by the tenderness and care of this gesture. I used to see young couples holding hands in Italy, especially teenagers. Seeing Plymouth adults holding hands outside has been a pleasant surprise for me.
Since then I have started thinking about what young people and adults could think about love. And then I asked them to help me understanding it. This installation of sound recordings and photographs have been collected through conversations between young people and the older generation, in Plymouth, on the topic of love. Each conversation explores ideas about whether we can learn more by talking to each other, giving and taking advice, and what the young can learn from the old and vice versa.
