« Tout a commencé au Vietnam il y a plus de quinze ans, alors que j’accompagnais un organisme d’adoption dans un orphelinat. On m’a mis dans les bras un bébé dit hermaphrodite. Autour de nous, les médecins discutaient de son cas : qu’allaient-ils en faire, une fille ou un garçon?
Cet événement m’a marqué à jamais. »
“It all started in Vietnam more than fifteen years ago when I accompanied an adoption agency on a visit to an orphanage. A baby referred to as a ‘hermaphrodite’ was placed in my arms. All around us, doctors were discussing what they were going to make this baby into, a girl or a boy? This moment made an indelible mark on me.”
Also on display: The Sun Room, The Invite, Colour by Icons, and The Moon Room.
