This video explores the relationships between men and women – from dazzling chemical attraction, when ‘love is blind’, through to when love sours, gets complicated, and vengeful. Her third collaboration with editor Gary Hillberg, Love continues her strategy of sampling Hollywood movies (and sometimes foreign and more obscure cinema) to reveal and subvert narrative archetypes.
In Love the uber-narrative becomes a sardonically ironic comedy in which sassy, free-thinking females assert their liberation from male chauvinism.
