“Love” delves into the details, complexities, and imperfections of real-life relationships using the iconic Barbie and Ken dolls, known for generations as symbols of idealized love and relationships. Fused in an embrace, these inseparable figures embody the intense and sometimes inescapable connection between two people in love.

I use the metaphor of rotating figures to convey the mix of joy and pain, fear, and beauty in love, prompting questions about its nature and impact on individuals. The figures appear to be dancing, but whether they are enjoying themselves or causing harm remains unclear.

I challenge these idealized notions by mirroring the dual nature of love. While it can bring immense joy and satisfaction, it also carries the potential of hardship and distress.
