I Want You to Need Me / J'veux qu' tu m'veux

Stefan St-Laurent

2001, 04:00 minutes, colour


Can popular songs be appropriated to convey the experience of a gay-bashing in Moncton? Or the need for acceptance? In an ongoing series of autobiographical performance videos named Overmelodramas, the artist explores our relationship to violence and culture, and questions our polarized tastes for melodrama and documentary.
