To the Man in My Dreams

Notes

The project is the result of a letter-writing game developed during workshops led by artist George Chakravarthi with members of SW5, London’s advice and information service for male and transgender sex workers. The letter-writing process emerged as a form of imaginative role-play where identities can be swapped and recreated. The folder contains a handwritten letter, an envelop and an explenatory sheet.
