I have not loved (enough or worked) presents various accounts of love and longing, loneliness and loss, ranging from melancholic-sanguine email letters to case studies on cognitive labour within the Jogja art scene. It explores how our understanding of these tangled, at times tortuous notions shape out relationships to the world as a collective, as pairs and as other social assemblies. This publication accompanies the exhibition I have not loved (enough or worked) at The Art Gallery of Western Australia, which brings together video, photography, painting and sculpture by artists Hai-Hsin Huang, Daisuke Kosugi, Rinko Kawauchi, Sejin Kim, Pixy Liao, Lin Zhipeng (aka 223), Lieko Shiga and Tao Hui. Their works reveal how deeply enmeshed our bodies, and the subjective forces of love and desire, are within the fantasies of the “good life.”
I have not loved (enough or worked) is the second title in the series Unclaimed Ideas by the Simon Lee foundation institute of Contemporary Asian Art. Created as a series of paperback readers, Unclaimed Ideas presents essays and interviews by leading voices and undiscovered talents who change the way we understand art and its relationship to the most critical issues in the world today.
