Laurel Nakadate, Fever dream with rabbit.

Nakadate is exactly my age but with much better abs. We’re both year of the rabbit. A little something on her first major museum show, at PS1.

Andres Serrano, SHIT (Hieronymus Bosch shit). C-print, 2008. Image © Andres Serrano / Yvon Lambert.

Visited the studio of photographer Andres Serrano, with Radiant Mayhem. This artist has inspired me for years. Why? Because his work is never boring.

Particularly memorable: Something he said really stood out to me, and I’m loosely paraphrasing, but AS said something like “my whole thing is being where I’m not supposed to be”; and this was in reference to choosing his photographic themes.  Outsiders make the best insiders, right?
