  • An in depth examination about the ignorance and intolerance towards queer existence, combined with the components of gay reality and the AIDS crisis. This installation manifests how the artist concerns himself with loss and fragility , queer identity, homophobia, the plague as an identifier, death and disease. Sarahan describes his intent as, I didn t want to sit down, shut up and sew a quilt or play the numbers games of how many people have died from AIDS, I wanted to kick ass...I wanted to investigate the elements of homophobia and bashing.
