Tell us, what do you do in life?
I’m the coordinator of artist residences at AIR Antwerpen and work at Galerie Thomas Fischer in Berlin.
What do you like best about your place?
The windows. They open along the central axis. And the view is great – no particular reference, just big clouds passing by. I’m in between places a lot. My roots are in the Netherlands, my soul is in Belgium and my heart is in Berlin. It’s where my loved ones live. This place is spun together by threads and traces of warm thoughts going out to all of them. Looking outside gives me the feeling I could be here or there.
What kind of music are you listening to at the moment?
The Soft Hair record I got from my friend, and The Pink Caves by Fenster. They suit the spring sky.
What’s the first record you bought?
I was hoping you wouldn’t ask this question… the first record I bought was Lionel Richie’s CD single Angel.
What’s your favourite pastime?
Wednesday evenings with friends and residents at The Living Room, and meeting up with my boyfriend at any given place like Mönchengladbach.
What makes you dance?
Tasty earbites by Baumusik. And Chaka Khan’s I’m Every Woman!
Which is your favourite plant?
I like them all, but my favourite is thebig monster on the balcony. A friend got it from her grandmother, she gave an offshoot to me, I passed sprouts to others. One got eaten by a cat, one survived airmail, one is called Egon. It keeps on going, in all directions. A true survivor and giver.
Have you experienced any regrets recently?
Ha-ha. Endless doubts, but in the end no regrets. Note to everyone and self: just follow your intuition.
Which future Subbacultcha show are you looking forward to?
