whose art are we seeing in the photographs?
alexandra eastburn. she has an art show that just opened. she’s a friend of mine from when i lived in memphis. they’re these long drawings, kind of like egyptian scrolls. i used to take photos of her in her house, when we lived in memphis, drawing and showing me her collages, and it was just a really great moment, and a great way to document someone’s work. the last time i shot her she was in her own clothes, but i thought how great to do something again where i styled her to to go with what was going on in the drawings.
every time i see you, you’re in this totally off-the-wall creation. what’s your process? are you conjuring some sort of historical figure or something? or are you less intentional than that, more spontaneous?
it’s definitely based off my mood. i’m really moody and i wouldn’t want to define it like that, it’s just how i feel, how i need to protect myself during the day, cover my body or not cover my body. how i want to be out in the world at that moment and its totally based off of emotionally what’s happening inside me-especially the coverage. and the pairing of things together that makes me feel comfortable. when you leave your apt in the morning and you live in new york, you don’t go back to your apartment until much later, so you bring with you what you want and need to make yourself ok. i think about how long i’m going to be able to deal with my outfit, how i’m going to be able to change it throughout the day...i think about that.
in the past when i lived in l.a. i kept a ton of clothes in my car and i would change constantly. your car is also very much like your protection. i’ve been famous for having wardrobe changes my entire life, especially when i was a kid too.
i would say these 1940’s snakeskin open-toe platform shoes. they almost look 70s...or maybe 40s glam, groupie-looking shoes.
do you have your geriatric look planned out yet? like, your retiree look?
i’m going to be really, really, really slutty.
