展览要讲述的是一个摆脱束缚同时又令人痛苦的过渡时期。 大多数人看到“为什么你不再爱我”这个题目,都会在内心产生一种无法抵抗、甚至忧郁的情绪。回忆醒过来了。提到或是听到“为什么你不再爱我?”令人恐惧,会引发愤怒、失望、绝望、空虚、悲伤和自暴自弃,人的心冷如同掉进一个黑暗的情感空洞。这是一个过程,一些事情慢慢地发生,而另一些则一些突然降临。这是所有人都能感同身受的情绪,在全世界,不同文化终都会存在,没有人可以置身事外。


在某些有着强烈传统价值观念的国家,爱情经常被看作一种男人与女人之间建立的联盟。 直到今天,自由地选择爱人在很多地方仍然是不可能的,尤其是对女人,而结束一段关系也难以实现。但随着现代化的兴起以及现代城市文化的发展,人们能够在舞厅、公共场合、咖啡厅等场所公开庆祝浪漫关系。一种自信的浪漫主义正在形成。


“What we call the beginning is often the end. And to make an end is to make a beginning. The end is where we start from.” T.S. Eliot

stageBACK is pleased to announce "Why don't you love me anymore?" - a recommendation exhibition that includes 20 artists, presenting all current media. The recommenders who have chosen the participants are artists themselves as well as writers, curators, collectors, socialites, academics and friends.

This exhibition celebrates the moment of transition which is liberating but also initiates grief. Spotting the title "Why don't you love me anymore?" triggers an immediate overwhelming and often bleak emotion in most people. Memory awakens. This feared situation of speaking or hearing it:  "Why don't you love me anymore?", provokes anger, disappointment, hopelessness, emptiness, sadness and renunciation. Just a few of the dark emotional holes a human mind can fall into. It’s about a process or something that developed or something that just suddenly happened. These are feelings that everyone understands. This is global and cuts across all cultures. No one stays unaffected.

"Why don't you love me anymore?" is not necessarilily about one person’s feelings or about two lovers. It is a declaration that  demonstrates societal transformation, and can act as a reminder of historical changes during  political circumstances. "Why don't you love me anymore?"  is a symbolic codification that can express itself in art, pop culture and even the market economy. However, convictions are changing rapidly with the growth of new generations. Brutally, the past has taught us: What is ideal today won't be ideal tomorrow.

In countries with strong traditional values, love is often considered as a constructed alliance between a man and a woman. Until present times, an autonomous and independent subjectivity of partnership, especially for women, was not possible in many places. Nor was ending a relationship a realistic option. But with the rise of modernity and the development of a modern urban culture where romance can be celebrated (dance halls, public spaces, cafes, etc) a self-confident romanticism has developed.

“Why don’t you love me anymore?”, describes a change, from loving to not loving but also a leaving behind and letting go. Moving on and growing up. It is a strong notion to understand that we are able to openly accept others close to us and experience an affirmation of love. In art this is a manner of constant re-creation, a process of coming to terms with one's past and future. It is the understanding and confirmation of what we are deeply involved in and love. Knowing it will challenge the Recommender and his/her Selected Person. To choose and to be chosen. To start and stop. To laugh and to cry. To fly high and to fall deep. To fall in and out of love with the temporal. The emotional roller coaster of life. This is love. This is art.
