Alessandra Kila & Philip Rusharc: The Impossibility of Love

Alessandra Kila & Philip Rusharc: The Impossibility of Love
International Photography Grant 2019

In the series ‘The Impossibility of Love’ Kila & Rusharc embark on a conceptual journey venturing through fantastical terrains searching for the parameters of possibility. Through the construction of contemporary dreamscapes that combine artificial objects and organic matter, they explore the original impulse of the Surrealist’s concept of L’Amour Fou (Mad Love). The photographers use this notion, adopted by André Breton in the 1920s to describe what drives someone to abandon everything in the pursuit of desire, to explore the frequently paradoxical relationship between desire and delusion.
