Crude Intimacies

Crude Intimacies, Gelare Khoshgozaran’s risograph of objects made from oil byproducts was commissioned by Hostile Books. Crude Intimacies is a companion to Khoshgozaran’s video installation, Crude.

I’m part of Hostile Books but all the HB work on this one was done by Ryan Kaveh Sheldon. And here I am oozing admiration for Khoshgozaran’s & Ryan’s works and dialogue. Belatedly!
