A Mini Q&A with Your Favourite Artist!
I thought I’d take the time to respond to an exposing list of questions and prompts about me so that you can get to know me better! What a treat!
Currently, I am 24, though I suspect this will change at some point? Not sure.
12th July 1997 — and yes, you are more than welcome to wish me happy birthday and shower me with expensive gifts and sugary treats! I would not say no.
I’m a Cancer! Let’s hope it’s not symbolic of anything…
I’m an interdisciplinary artist, meaning that I work across a range of disciplines and often blend them together. My disciplines include writing, theatre, film, photography, art, and art criticism.
OK…We get it! You like art! So, what else do you do?
I’m a very spiritual person and find every aspect of the world fascinating — even the detestable and the grotesque. I love to learn and so immerse myself regularly in all kinds of things: mathematics, architecture, marine biology, sociology, astrophysics, history, etc. Even though I’m not meant to be talking about art for this one…all of this certainly influences my artistic thinking and visions.
If you wanted more on my “spiritualism”, I have a whole publication on this here.
I don’t really listen to music. I find pop music to be too bland and predictable, and classical music I find either useful at bedtime or as the object of an artistic pursuit or study.
However, I do go through phases of obsessing over certain musical artists. Billie Eilish — or, as I like to refer to her, William Eyelash — or HyunA are my most recent obsessions…but these are slowly dying down. Ashnikko is also fabulous. I like unique musical artists, those with a distinct vision, sound and agenda.
1. Food! Oreos are my favourite — it’s actually a problem (please send help).
2. Sleep. Can’t get enough of it — literally…I have insomnia (please send help).
3. I love animals and insects to the point where I will go out of my way and take the longer route home on rainy days to make sure that worms, slugs and snails aren’t in danger of being trodden on.
Favourite news interview?
Now you're asking questions!
Please, welcome to the stage the myth and the legend, the maker of dreams, Constance Landry:
Favourite deadly sin?
Jealousy…vanity takes second place.
Favourite TV show?
Bob’s Burgers is a great shout!
Well, in terms of role model, everything she does is amazing, I want to be her, she is everything: Naomi Campbell
But in terms of comedy icon, could watch them all day every day, everything they say makes me die: Kermit the Frog and Lady Colin Campbell. (If you don't know who Lady C is, I recommend some quickfire Googling! You won't regret it; she's phenomenal.)
Ooh. Two Campbells…how mesmerising.
Movies or Books?
Movies! Most definitely. I hate reading…
Black. (And for those of you who have been deceived that black isn’t a colour, even though it doesn’t actually exist: purple).
1. Sometimes, too caring. I try to see the best in everyone and everything.
2. Perfectionism. Everything must be PERFECT.
3. I don’t know how to take time for myself…everything’s about career, career, career. It can be a draining and counterproductive mindset but…’tis me!
1. Analysing things. I’m obsessed with answers, and I’m very good at psychoanalysis, so beware!
2. My ability to have an energy level of 1,000% despite constantly running on 2.975 hours’ sleep.
3. I have a unique perspective on the world and don’t follow the movements of the crowd.
Anything else you want to say before the jury make their verdict?
I hope this was a revealing read!
