Love is whimsy and love is blind, or so they say. From a conversation between four friends, to couples embracing, to a star-gazing young man crumbling before your eyes, We used to talk about love contemplates the diverse terrain of love – joy and elation, sex and flesh, desire and rejection, crushing endings, melancholia and memory, nostalgia and loss.

We used to talk about love features the work of eleven artists – Polly Borland, Eliza Hutchison, Paul Knight, Angelica Mesiti, David Noonan, David Rosetzky, Tim Silver, Glenn Sloggett, Grant Stevens, Darren Sylvester and Justene Williams. Collectively their work reveals a paradigm shift away from postmodernism towards the intimate in art practice. The artists all work in the field of photomedia – covering photography, film and video – but also combined with collage, sculpture and installation art.
