Further information

A collaborative project initiated by Nikki Forrest, Annie Martin and Nelson Henricks, who have produced a number of short video works on the theme of 'love'. Each one approaches the theme from a different angle, be it love's generosity, lust, romantic addiction, erotic compulsion, unstable identities, obsession, or the search for love. The resulting catalogue of works creates an index of the different aspects of love that's as dizzying and diverse as our experience of love itself. Currently, this series in progress consists of seven works: My Heart the Gambler and My Heart the Artist by Annie Martin, My Heart the Electrician and My Heart the Rock Star by Nikki Forrest, and My Heart the Optometrist and My Heart the Philosopher by Nelson Henricks. The recently completed My Heart the Bureaucrat was the result of a collaboration between Henricks and Halifax-based video and filmmaker David Clark. Like love, this work knows no bounds...
