Venezuelan video installation artist, Javier Téllez makes films in collaboration with psychiatric patients or people with disabilities. Combining elements of fiction and documentary, Téllez and the patients rewrite familiar stories or make their own, drawing attention to questions about what is normal as well as investigating social prejudices and stereotypes. FWCA will present two of the artist’s films which have never been shown in Texas before.
