Tell a Sad Story Installation Image

Through critique and analysis, researchers have learned that anti-LGBT hate crime perpetrators are predominantly ordinary young men who do not have a criminal background and are often middle-class and white. Over and over, it is these ordinary young men that play out their ideas of masculinity to police what they perceive to be gender appropriateness and normalcy. In this paradigm, the victims are a stand in for the group, the perpetrators all share similar traits and any simple object can be transformed into a weapon. All these interchangeable parts point to a larger system of violence, and a fragility bubbling just under the surface of our social structure.

Tell a Sad Story is a photographic and sculptural installation, which is based on a specific hate crime case, in which the weapon used is a beer bottle. The identities of the perpetrators and the victim are purposely left unknown as I ask viewers to question how images are read. The multiple bottles insinuate the duration, physical closeness and struggle of this act.
