Abstract

Commissioned by Hatch for Embrace Arts Centre, Hello, I Love You sees artist Steve Fossey invite participants to call him up and spend 10 minutes on the phone with him as he attempts to make them fall in love with him. The artist and his participant sit opposite one another but are distant enough that things don't feel too awkward. A rope connects the pair which they hold onto in a further attempt to unite. The piece explores intimacy and what it is to say share histories of loves won and lost with those you have never met before.
