Abstract (English)

"Premiering at Gallery TPW is his documentary work 100 Stories About My Grandmother, a four-channel video installation weaving together portraits of male sex trade workers telling stories about their grandmothers. Sharing family stories may seem banal, but inviting sex trade workers to do so becomes a way of including them in a society frequently all too eager to reject them. Audiences are invited to spend time lounging and listening to the thoughts and memories of an often marginalized community, allowing the talked-about to talk, giving a voice to those who have been voiceless." -- Publisher's website.
