In years when I wasn’t performing, I was sometimes getting on the stage during other people’s concerts, faking it just for the photo.
In 2012 I started up a band Sorja Morja with a friend (and almost stopped making my own music).
In 2017-18 we played around 20 concerts, also on big festivals like Opener and OFF.
We split in October [*]
Destruction of one of the works I made in Jingdezhen
bi- residency. Staying in the shadow during biennale Manifesta in Palermo.
Our halloween video for the song “Death”
I spent the money I got from the residency on road trip
Everyday during two months of the residency in Quebec I was picking up and treating (manually filtring, drying, wedging) mud from the St. Lauren river to the point that it was clay-like, so I could practice throwing pots with it. That was my daily physically hard, but soothing workflow I established by myself. At the end of residency I put all the unfired results to the river and the tight took it back.
La vase (fr.) – vase, mud
Work was made at the residency Est-Nord-Est and Pépinières Européennes pour Jeunes Artistes, a Saint-Jean-Port Joli, Quebec, 2017
Adriana ♥️ was working more intensively than I during the residency.
We became friends and we spent a lot of time talking, while she was making her works.
I enjoyed this one especially, so I asked if that could be my work as well and she agreed.
