Via Art Tattler

 

My mother was a restorer, she repaired broken things. I don't do that. I destroy things. I cannot go the straight line. I must destroy, rebuild, destroy again. My rhythm is not the same. My mother moved in a straight line: I go from one extreme to the other.

Louise Bourgeois

Dance of a Goddess


Isadora duncan

 

 
'You were once wild here. Don't let them tame you.'

 
 
Isadora Duncan

Isadora Duncan's half-naked, nymph-like movements changed the nature of ballet - and anticipated modern choreography.

'The only real elegance is in the mind;

if you've got that, the rest really comes from it.'

Marchesa Luisa Casati

'But her alchemy was much more complex, producing many other marvels. By what fire did she transmute the substance of her life into beauties of such moving power?

She demonstrated how true it is that all enchantment is a madness induced with art.

But what was the real essence of this creature?

Was she aware of her continuous metamorphosis, or was she impenetrable to herself, excluded from her own mystery?'

The wonderful Tilda

Tilda pringle

If there is anyone in the realm of contemporary acting  that intrigues and inspires me it would be Tilda Swinton.

The red carpet calls

Boer

Today I received an email asking for a few 'gunnas'* for the next red carpet event. As if I didn't have any lovely pieces I could easily send today. I have decided to embark myself in a 38 hour frenzy ,making a few pieces I think would be much nicer for the wonderful candidate.

There is nothing better than an impossible deadline to get one's life back in track...specially after a week or so living in limbo....

In anticipation of a couple of sleepless nights and overdosing in chocolate and coffee...I wish you all a wonderful weekend  !
