A bit of a sad story which I am over but I keep bringing up.. This is the couple fom the Catherine Wheel. I put my boyfriend with my girl friend for the photographs, they fell in love two weeks before the opening- the end of my relationship with him.
He stayed with me till I got through the show, so love didn’t last as long as a cigerette.
Title influenced by B52 song- a good dancing track for parties at the time.
Influenced by the fairy tale Hansel & Gretel.
From the exhibition “How to Make Love Stay” rondeau Gallery, Newtown, Sydney 1990.
