You are an obsession, you’re my obsession…
For those who do not share it, unconditional devotion is seen as unhealthy and unsettling. But to the devotee their chosen idol – however undeserving - is at the centre of the world. Tainted Love is a day dreamingly dark installation about obsessional love. These desires for desire will range from simple groups of paintings to more elaborate devotional structures each dedicated to what Proust claimed was 'the only successful (sustainable) love’ – unrequited. From cabinets of transgression to intimate shrines the Tainted Love artists use objects to attempt to come closer to their objects of desire.
