Love is in the Error: Pathetic Solutions to Pathetic Problems was a show by Chris von Szombathy and Drew Shaffer at the Catalog Gallery under curator Robert Squier in Vancouver, 2012. This show was also produced with the support of the DTES Small Arts Grant provided through the Vancouver Foundation.

This show of sculptural work put forth our mutual conception that our actions are both pathetic and divine; that what is gauche is more revealing than what is graceful. The work is proof that the exegesis of our existence is as ignored as it is apparent.

The main piece titled You Complete Me was also shown at Gallery Gachet and Chapel Arts.
