DESCRIPTION

10 artworks that memorialize victims of homophobic murders in Brazil. 

Brazil has sanctioned same-sex civil unions throughout its territory and hosts the largest Gay Pride parade in the world.  At the same time, the country has one of the highest rates of violence against homosexuals.  Crimes Against Love memorializes some of these victims of intolerance.  Each piece juxtaposes large format photographs of ravaged sculptures taken from Greco-Roman and Medieval collections of preeminent museums, all printed on fabric, with micro narratives taken from the newspapers, i.e. “2012.  Buried alive by his stepfather.  He was 14 and struggled to be openly gay.” A law that would criminalize homophobia has been proposed in 2001 and is yet to be voted by the Brazilian Congress.
