Aired December 17th, 2020 on Cashmere Radio, 18h
The Goldrausch project for women artists promotes the careers of outstanding, emerging women artists through a one-year postgraduate professional development course, an exhibition, and public events. To celebrate their 30th anniversary in 2020, Goldrausch have collaborated with Cashmere Radio to produce special shows with some of its 2020 participants.
In this show, I was invited to moderate a discussion and produce a radio show with the artists Mona Hermann, Rosanna Graf, and Gosia Lehmann on the themes that connect their artistic practices. We move through alternative belief systems and the search for truth in illusion, contemporary modes of shamanism, and the 5 senses of plants.
In August 2015, the artist Alan Fertil—a friend and collaborator—died in a tragic accident. In the years since, some of Alan’s closest friends and family—Eléna Fertil, Aude Pariset, Gabriele Beveridge, Matthieu Ortalda, Dehlia Dondain, Renaud Perriches, Marie de Gaulejac, and I among them—compiled and edited a book of Alan’s drawings, sketches, and notes. I’m immensely proud to soon be able to share this project with those who knew Alan, and those who will get to learn about him.
I’ve written the introduction for the book, which was translated to French by Matthieu Ortalda.
Forthcoming in early 2021…
In March 2021, I’ll be guest hosting a show on WFMU Radio.
