The Love Objects Studio Session explores the material forms of love and devotion. Contributors to this new publication discuss their research on subjects ranging from shoes made by women at home in the late 18th and early 19th centuries, to narrative and meaning in women's sex shops, and the bleeding statues of Templemore in early 20th century Ireland. Showcasing the issues presented in the Bloomsbury publication 'Love Objects: Emotion, Design and Material Culture', the sessions explores the emotional potency of things, addressing how objects can function as active participants in and mediators of our relationships, as well as tokens of affection, foci for devotion and symbols of both fun and sexual liberation.
