KG: But do you like the process of drawing?
LR: No. I can’t stand it.
Needle in a haystack. That’s how Google translates it. It’s somewhere beyond reach, floating in the air at night. It’s a well-kept mechanism, bound to grind its maintainer. I talk to Līva’s music more often than with herself, I talk with wood chips. It’s almost saut dans le vide, except the void is still shaping up and growing, living as bacteria on a white cube’s concrete floor. For now, let’s hide.
