Live Interview with Sophie Rogg here.
Ursula le guin (i took a note)
And after that we’ve been talking
About Dirty translations*
About how ppl who can’t draw make great bd and ppl who don’t intend to make art do it*
And how Sophie would like to know more poetry bc it seems this is where lays freedom and I told her that she already Makes poetry like the names of her pieces are so.. <linguistically savory> and this is maybe where she is this free of education and experience person that makes great stuff
About how it is tricky to have a bf as a cishet girl in deconstruction
About Clara Schulmann (who is awesome)
About discovering feminism and never quitting it (and how it is not an enemy)
About more feminist authors we don’t remember names* but it seems like we just had them on mind
About graphic design in Swiss and Holland
And how it gives pleasure no more
Sophie showed me photographs of pasta out of Tupperware that kept their Tupperware shapes
About having been perfectionist
About now having no pleasure to be perfectionist and conform to the norm
About the new Crèvecoeur gallery space which is actually a showroom at st germain and marcelle alix gallerist who told that no collector go to Belleville and how it’s not easy to be gallerist as a woman
About the language norms that are shitty and just are symbolic violence in most of cases
About how as someone who doesn’t want to conform (even in the matters of speech) especially in france, where ‘méthod’ seems the only way, you have not to just do ur do that doesn’t conform but also build a massive highly conforming defense over it.
Sophie’s psy says why won’t you go with the stream, now I think fuck such psy
Sophie kindly gave me the bondage for the phone and bounded it, we freestyled about the name for it, we got agreed over my net is your net

*This is a part of what home sweet home exhibition is about, Sophie takes pictures of what just happens, which later reinforces the act of letting it go while working on art.
*like Griselda Pollock, Modernité et espaces de la féminité, 1988/2003

Solo project by Alexandra Galenko for Nastassia’s iPhone homescreen
In her heartsquishing and heartwarming show Slow Art, Alexandra Galenko shares with us moments of slow life she observes on her walks.
With four videos featuring a snail on a lilac leaf (She made it!, 2021), snails running one over another (Rushing snails, 2020), a worm hiding into the ground (Aiming worm, 2020), and a snail meeting a tiny bug (Snail and weevil, 2020), Alexandra reintroduces us to a kind of spontaneous and fresh contact with nature. Like you are a kid again, in the summer, and the world of bugs is your world.
The funny titles Aleksandra gives to her videos bring in a grain of salt and guide us into a story the artist is projecting onto the scene. I inevitably think of soviet animations, labeled as kind, or maybe Pixar. And when sometimes Alexandra all of a sudden comments in her videos, she has a slight air of Nikolay Drozdov, the host of the TV show In the World of Animals. And it makes me feel like looking for the meaning in life again, for how to live and what it is to be human.
Friend. Best friend. They are very glad.
(Aleksandra Galenko’s voiceover in Snail and weevil, 2020)
