“Young Love” explores the meaning of love and youth within a contemporary framework. At what point did young love lose its projected verdure, stepping away from the sphere of the naïve, the candied, the untouched, into a darker, more monstrous and sullied realm, resembling its actual antonym—hate? Where is the divide? It is this intricate discourse which simultaneously revolves around and shatters the concept of “young love”. This work investigates the symbolic migrations between the many worlds that compose one’s identity, and the emotional and psychological landmarks that are integral parts of coming into one’s socio-sexual being.
