’5 Years / 5 Questions’ with KuKula
Tell us a little bit about your piece for Thinkspace’s ’5 Year Anniversary Show’ this November?
I feel like maybe in some place this is a self portrait. I was trying to find a pose that make it unclear if she’s flying in the sky or is she actually falling. She have a funky umbrella because she’s waiting for the rain, all in her nicest silk shoes which surly will go bad if they’ll get wet, just anther wrong shoes calculation…and of course like in every classic nightmare dream, she doesn’t wear a top on.
What were you doing back in 2005 when Thinkspace started?
5 years ago I was only living in the States for less then a year. Was ironing drawings on T-shirts and selling them in boutiques. I’m not sure if I even made any paintings then… maybe I hade my first show in a store in Berkeley then.
Name 5 things you can’t live without in your studio?
I couldn’t live with out my collections: books and magazines, antique dolls, shoes and vintage cloth, movies, and my husband.
Where do you hope to be 5 years from now?
All I can think about when I look at the future is that I won’t be sick and I’ll have all my limbs attached… that will be great!
What have you got coming up in 2011?
For 2011 I’ll have only one solo show. I’m also working with an Israeli fashion company on a little collection together and I hope to work on my French.
