Art Exhibition ‘Me, We’ by Liz McCrystal runs Saturday 13 November to Saturday 21 November 2021 at the Narooma Gallery (formerly SoArt Gallery), Narooma, NSW Australia.
Me, We is a mixed media exhibition that uses roadwork and construction aesthetics to analyse the concept of romantic love. A mix of photo, text, ceramics and everyday objects are deployed resulting in a tongue-in-cheek expression of contemporary and historic ideas and ideals around romantic love.
For some, the quality of our romantic relationships underpins the quality of our lives overall, making the weight of finding romantic love one of the most important things in an individual’s life. Yet, unlike roadwork navigations, we are left in relative isolation, traversing this arena with few tools and an out-of-date road map.
“Love, more specifically, romantic love has had me raging with significant others since I started dating. A lot of insidious romantic ideas from mainstream, pop-culture shaped my ideas and made me believe for a long time that there was a sort of checklist to romantic love.”
Liz McCrystal is a visual artist based on the NSW South Coast whose practice explores themes of identity, isolation, intimacy and anxiety through the theoretical framework of the human condition. Experimental in approach, Liz uses photography and installation to deconstruct auto-biographical, topical and philosophical subjects.
Liz completed a Bachelor of Visual Arts at Sydney College of the Arts in 2009 and has exhibited with; Photo Access Firstdraft, Verge Gallery, 107 projects and the Coffs Harbour Regional Gallery.
