What’s your earliest art related memory?
Nice question! But I have a few answers, because my art related memories are quite numerous!
I remember when I was a 5-year-old, sitting in the back garden underneath a parasol (it was raining cats and dogs). My mom had given me a hammer, some wood and nails and I made several wooden stacks-object-thingies. I think this was the first time I experienced my ‘Hyper Focus’, while making work.
Museum-wise my first memory is the Dali Museum in Spain.
Also, when I was about 4 years old, my aunt and uncle were living in a quite big house, and they had some sort of sculpture on a pillar in the living room. I was always really fascinated by it. About 8 years ago, I realised it was the most ultimate camp thing you can have in your household: David’s statue by Michelangelo on a white, high pillar.
What’s your worst food guilty pleasure?
I love everything with banana flavor.
Banana Sweets, Banana Milkshake, Banana Liqueur, Banana Ice Cream: you name it. I always feel bad afterwards, but if there’s something to choose with banana, I pick banana.
If not this profession then what profession?
I think as an artist you always have some side jobs, but if I could choose a profession I would love to be a teacher.
