Tell us, what do you do in life?
Rémy: I’m a painter and a painting teacher and I’m currently working as a social worker with kids in Neder-Over-Heembeek.
Alice: I’m a photographer and video artist and I’m working in a shop in Brussels where I’m responsible for the plant department.
What do you like best about your place?
Rémy: The beautiful mess and the strong contrast between the stuff we bring inside. There’s something organic about our place. Like it has its own life or something. It’s kind of an echo to my mind.
Alice: I love my plants that are slowly taking over and my old pieces of furniture that all have their own stories; each is a memory. Memory has always been a big part in my life (which can be seen in my artistic work). And also the incredible view from our balcony; Brussels is at our feet.

What kind of music are you listening to at the moment?
Rémy: Parquet Courts, Gun Outfit and Ultimate Painting and the last EP of van den Bear.
Alice: I mostly listen to the radio at the moment (KEXP) but I listen a lot to the latest album by Warhaus.
What’s the first record you bought?
Rémy: Red Hot Chili Peppers, Californication. I’ll never forget ‘Road Trippin’.
Alice: My dad had so many records that I don’t really have a memory of buying one… Either he would buy them for me or I would find them in his collection… The first memories of music that was only my own where probably Aaliyah, Britney or Alicia Keys.
What makes you dance?
Rémy: ‘Eisbaer’ by Grauzone. This songs drives me crazy! And the swingin’ legs of my love!
Alice: Alcohol, good friends and good music (R’n’B does the trick pretty good).
Any quick/dirty pleasures?
Rémy: Drugs in general; alcohol in particular.
Alice: Smoking, fast food, soft caresses of my hair…
Which future Subbacultcha show are you looking forward to?
Both: Andrew Savage in Ghent!
