Aggressive Vulnerabilities is part art project, part life practice, part philosophic experiment. I’m interested in exploring various questions surrounding mental health and queerness through my own experiences, as well as others. Can I help craft a culture where mental illness is destigmatized if I’m aggressively vulnerable with my experiences in and out of psychiatry? Is it possible to deconstruct toxic masculine behaviors by embracing queerness in mind and body?
In addition to objects, installation, and writing, I’ve been utilizing honesty in my life both on and offline. By being honest about how I’m actually feeling any given day, I hope to break social conventions that require lying about our emotions under the guise of “politeness”.
