Aromantic Romanticism was a collaborative project between Colin Lievens (they/them) and Thomas Oliver (he/him). Borrowing the format from the tradition of Advent a new work was made daily for 25 days finishing on 4th December 2019, the first anniversary of Oliver’s open heart surgery. The series draws parallels between Oliver’s open heart surgery and Lievens’ upcoming top surgery, reflecting on waiting, identity, community, medicine and gifting through their contrasting artistic practices in thoughtful and playful ways.
