regram @z_al // writing last minute ADR (additional dialogue recording) while @therealjasonisaacs (HAP) performs brilliantly from a stage in London 💂

to a 2019 of finding magic even in (or especially in) the mundane // happy new year beautiful people 🐉


two films that blew my mind this year for their ingenuity and import — #sorrytobotheryou (@bootsriley) and #burningfilm (Lee Chang-dong). In both you feel the collective power of a tribe of artists exposing the brutality of late capitalism and doing it with humor, grace and searing insight. In awe and haunted. Also — one of my favorite actors @steveyeun happens to play brilliantly in both. Search out these films. 🔥🔥🔥

portrait of poet Anna Akhmatova by painter Olga Della-Vos-Kardovskaia /// From her poem Requiem - “In the terrible years of the Yezhov terror I spent seventeen months waiting in line outside the prison in Leningrad. One day somebody in the crowd identified me. Standing behind me was a woman, with lips blue from the cold, who had, of course, never heard me called by name before. Now she started out of the torpor common to us all and asked me in a whisper (everyone whispered there): ‘Can you describe this?’
And I said: ‘I can.’
Then something like a smile passed fleetingly over what had once been her face. “

This passage makes me think about the importance of female artists and voices in the current climate — how desperately we need them to give language and shape and lend image — description! — to their experiences if the world is going to evolve through empathy into a more balanced, humane place.

was about to throw these withering tulips out but they’re so beautiful in this state I decided to photograph them instead. has me thinking about how strange it is that we live in a culture that usually locates beauty only in peak bloom

post show at @siesmarjan this afternoon 📷 @z_al /// There was a period in my life where I stuck to black and white in wardrobe — a uniform I didn’t have to think too much about. Sander’s work at @siesmarjan opened me to a world of color, especially discordant color, that I had never considered. Sander has become a friend and this week he invited me into his atelier where he designs. I loved seeing into his creative process — the black foam boards in every room filled with obscure color references and fresh juxtapositions, the bold women he surrounds himself with who all wear his pieces very differently, the library of artist work for inspiration (Morandi among them!), the entire wall devoted to buttons. It was moving to witness the whirlwind his creativity stirs.
