It was a no brainer for MoMu to feature such great artist in its exhibition! In the Ann Demeulemeester theme you can spot a video, El Abuelo shot by Dino dinco. This award-winning short film is an intimate portrait of local educator and poet, Joe Jimenez. Through the meditative process of ironing his clothes (a duty often identified as “women’s work”), we experience Joe in that familiar goal of finding the perfect crease. Of all domestic chores, ironing is the only one a “homeboy” is more than happy to master, as masterful ironing is the key to reaching an appearance of perfection. And to a homeboy, perfect creases work hand in hand with the power of attraction.
