Heartbreak Hotel (also known as The Museum of Love and Disappointments) is essentially exactly as described – a publicly-curated shrine to people’s past relationships including the good, the bad and the ugly. The premise is quite simple – QT Hotel is inviting submissions from anyone willing to part with mementos of their ex, along with their stories of the relationships that accompany the objects. The exhibition will be filled with potent reminders that the intersection of love, grief and memories is a truly universal (and sometimes very weird) experience.
If you’ve got your own object of love taking up space at your place, QT will gladly take it off your hands in the name of art – it just has to be accompanied with a little backstory. Can’t bear to part with your keepsakes? QT is also accepting love stories for submission, so you can still wear your heart on your sleeve without relinquishing your hoarder tendencies (no judgement here). The exhibition will also be running alongside some unique experience at Stingray Lounge, Bazaar, Yamagen and Fixx for the month of February, so that’s a little something extra to look forward to! Speaking of extras, all tickets come with a beverage at Fixx and a glass of love potion from Stingray – just to take the edge off.
Feeling curious? Heartbreak Hotel is popping up at QT Hotel from February 1–22 in 2021. You can nab a ticket here if you’re keen to check it out or read more about submitting your own story (and your ex’s junk) here. Psst … hotel guests get in for free, so it’s the perfect excuse for a staycay.
