Trans is a video exploring other personas morphed to myself. These transformations were collected from my posts on Instagram(@jabbati). They were originally created in Snapchat from my own photos and others I follow on Instagram. It’s a study of augmenting my reality with the outside world and creating a new narrative by rendering myself new to the world.
The San Francisco Examiners ran an article today featuring the LARGER THAN LIFE exhibit at Senator Scott Wiener’s office. http://www.sfexaminer.com/?p=175189
P1XELS.com interviewed me following the LARGER THAN LIFE exhibit of mine. We talked about the tapestries, as well as the history of drag queens and the iPhone photos that were part of the exhibit.

LARGER THAN LIFE is a solo exhibit of Joseph Abbati’s portraits of San Francisco drag queens turned into large scale tapestries. Those featured included well known drag queens who have contributed to the LGBTQ community: Sister Roma, Heklina, Peaches Christ, Honey Mahogany, Juanita More!, Creme Fatale, Grace Towers, and Juicy Liu. The exhibit had an opening reception on March 3 and will be exhibited throughout the month at Strut, 470 Castro St., San Francisco.
