Three sets down last night, ending with @parlourcar. This is the show that got me thinking about performing, the show where I spilt a beer on and thus met @mrseanpatton, the show that defined Thursdays for me when I lived here in #Chicago. Thank you so much for having me, what a blast.

Ho rimandato talmente tanto che pensavo di perdermi la mostra di Linda Fregni Nagler. Ma basta decidere di prendere un aereo a Pescara invece che a Bologna o Milano e quel che sembrava perso invece non lo è. Lei indaga le relazioni che mi appassionano: la storia e la sua riattualizzazione; la ricerca artistica e la domanda del collezionismo. Il suo è uno studio lunghissimo che parte da una meticolosa archiviazione. Le tecnica con cui sviluppa i suoi lavori è anch’essa lentissima: si ritorna alla camera oscura, si acquerella anche per settimane una sola foto. Giro da sola per la galleria, mi sento quasi avere un kimono indosso, cammino a passi lentissimi. Entro piano piano in questi mondi. Vorrei incontrare tutti questi venditori di fiori, vorrei essere la scia rossa lasciata dalla barca sul lago di Hakone. E mi accorgo solo dopo che il dittico ha due linee di orizzonti differenti. Diventa necessario fare un secondo giro e rivedere tutte le opere. Muovere lo sguardo lentamente, sempre. #lindafregninagler#hanatoyama#soloshow#dontmiss#yokohamashashin#flowers#fujiyama#archive#artist#research#vistamare#pescara
Heyyyy loves xxx SO, this is actually my 4th painting that I’ve done of a turtle and the FIRST time I’ve managed to get a high resolution photo of the piece for you guys to buy prints 🐢 I’ll tell ya quickly about the 1st time I failed a photo finish for my turtle 📸 I was in San Diego and I wangled a collab with @hostelworld - I swapped a painting for a months free stay in California, still one of my fave service swapping to date. Soo, the piece was a mural, on a wall so despite my best efforts, the lighting wasn’t great, meaning the quality of the final print would have been shit soooo that was a NO from me. 💎💎I do kinda get sad when I don’t get a good quality picture because I like looking back on work and also when I write my book lol I won’t be able to put it in. BUTTT now I have this one, sick! PS - please sign up for my newsletter(trust me); the link is in my bio, just scroll to the bottom xxxxx .
Coming up in October is a brand new solo show from the very talented @antoine_josse. We are delighted to be showing both paintings and sculptures in his first ever uk solo show. Private view is Thursday 4th October 6-8pm and his work will be available to purchase online from Monday 1st October.
the great @annadeaveresmith (without whose groundbreaking work I would literally have no model for what I do):
"acting is managing to have intimacy even in a complicated and frightening world, where most of us want only to protect ourselves from one another."
this is true of acting, of course- the body's participation in the act of storytelling makes it the most immediate manifestation of that intimacy. but I also believe it's true of *story in general.*
the central mechanism of storytelling is empathy- identification with a character who is not you.
this process is inherently intimate.
as audience, we relate to characters in the most intimate emotional ways- automatically. we feel their feelings, go on their journeys with them, experience their interiority.
we do this through the body of the actor--and through the framework created by the writer.
writing and acting aren't that different. they both operate through the magic and intimacy of character and identification. as an actor, your body is the location for that identification; as a writer, you're creating the location. that's all.
actors are natural storytellers because we deeply and intuitively understand the core of all great storytelling: character.
that's why every actor can make their own work. it just takes a slight perspective shift, and a few tools and concepts (many of which you're working with already without even knowing it).
I'm all about giving y'all those tools. stay tuned to this space- I'm cooking some stuff up....
