⧯ On the Silver Couch: Puppies Puppies

Artist Puppies Puppies

☮:  Tell us your story of your life in 140ch:

⧯ :  oops I went way over 140 ch
Mom Japanese Irish Father Puerto Rican
they met in Texas
birthed me
hated living in Texas
gay kid’s worst nightmare
discovered art at the age of 17
made angst-filled emo sculptures about the body and my organs 
felt very shy in every way
I am an insanely fragile person
made friends on the internet….felt like the only place I could be myself
then moved to Chicago 
went to school 
smoked weed to relax
realized who I was / am 
realized art could literally be anything 
diagnosed with a brain tumor
very dark times
had tumor removed 
kept making art
realized life is too short to care what people think
carried on and tried to break boundaries 
as many as I could 
Puppies Puppies was born
met Forrest felt life was worth living more than ever
counting down the days until I live in
Los Angeles the land of 
beautiful weather, Hollywood, and gays 

☮:What's the dividing line being an artist and an Instagram user?

⧯ there is no line there should never be a line! As long as you call it art there can be no distinction otherwise 

☮:What would you like to do in 30 years from now?

⧯ hopefully be alive and I want to take over the world

⧯ On the Silver Couch: Forrest Nash

Critic and Founder of Contemporary Art Daily: Forrest Nash

☮:  Tell us your story of your life in 140ch:

I grew up near the mountains, I've lived my adulthood in flat prairie, and now I'm moving to the coast. 

☮:  What's the most interesting thing about our era now ?

 : I think it is interesting how little people of the current era notice the changes happening around Them, and how rarely most people seem to marvel at the even more drastic changes will happen Within our lifetimes that I always feel a sense of overwhelming wonder about the ways that our time is different than the past, but people just sort of shrug. I think understanding that indifference Could be very valuable. 

☮: What's your favorite quote?

 : "And That Is the main condition of absurdity-the dragooning of an unconvinced transcendent consciousness into the service of an immanent, limited enterprise like a human life" - Thomas Nagel

⧯ On the Silver Couch: Zoe Paul

Artist Zoe Paul

☮: Tell us your story of your life in 140ch

: I was born from South African political refugees who moved to Kythera in the 1970s; they were told "you have a beautiful house but there is no life in it"; when I was born they called me Ζωή

☮: What's your thoughts about everyday life in Greece?

:...let's see what the future holds...Greece can be a scary place. I have started making an aromatic garden these days so I'm spending quite a bit of time researching Mediterranean plants, for which the climate is very conducive.

☮: Whats your relationship with authority in general? 

:You know, I cannot understand whether sometimes I'm a bit of a dick with authority or it is the other way around.

⧯ On the Silver Couch: Quinn Latimer

Writer and poet Quinn Latimer

: Tell me the story of your life in 140 characters
: She read Little Women read Ai Gaitskill Paley ED Lessing she read the Woolf read Carson Sontag Arendt Ferrante Bachmann she wrote she wrote

: What makes a poet nowdays?
:: Language, denial, strange syntax. Concision—while paradoxically wanting “every kind of life,” per Sontag: “What I really wanted was every kind of life, and the writer’s life seemed the most inclusive.”

: Do you read a poem in the same way that you may "read" a painting?
:: No.

: What's your favourite title of a poem or artwork?
:: Poem: “Amorgos,” by Nikos Gatsos (at the moment). Artwork? I love the titles of Michel Auder’s moving-image works—Heads in Love (1970/2009) sounds like a certain kind of British paperback novel; I Am So Jealous of Birds (2001) always cracks me up. But I also like “Untitled” in almost every language.

⧯ On the Silver Couch: Peter Burleigh

Linguist Peter Burleigh

☮ What do you do exactly?

⧯: I am a dad, a linguist, a lover (she said) and becoming Deleuzian. IRL I grade papers and drive my girlfriend around.

☮ Have you ever thought to invent a new English word? if yes how that would be?

⧯: I had. Yesterday. But forgot what. The beauty of communication is in between words; words are rough designators around which the slight ephemera of meaning gather. So if that word was invented it’d be a blunt sketch of the linguistically uncovered notion—it’s just as well I forgot.

☮ :Does it influence you emotionally the language you are speaking? and if yes can you tell me an example?

⧯: Ashamed to say I only speak English properly. I get very irritated when tones of language, an essential and very private and precious tool, are used manipulatively in the grotesque neo-liberal “let-us-work-for-you” farce. Companies assuming the voice of a friend, from the non-capitalized smoothie to British Airways “To Fly – To Serve” logo drive me mad. I AM NOT YOUR MATE.

⧯ On the Silver Couch: Jesse Darling

☮:Tell us the story of your life in 140ch

Born to white immigrants in Wherever UK. Grew up weird, got a trade, lost my shit, found it back. Came out as 'artist' & the rest is history

☮:What's the most interesting thing you heard recently?

⧯: That the ancient stone lions that appear in eg Athens are a sort of word of mouth meme that travelled from Mesopotamia and that's why they look so funny, because nobody had ever seen one. 

☮: What makes you still living in London?

⧯ : At one point I felt like I would be useful, like there weren't many of my kind here so I should stick around and represent for my community. These days I just don't know, except that everyone has to live somewhere

⧯ On the Silver Couch: Phoebe Collings-James

 Artist Phoebe Collings-James 

:Tell us the story of your life:

 ⧯:As a child I was almost constantly naked, preferring life outdoors, trees, mud and mischief. Now as an adult artist my preoccupations are the same. The body, our connection with the earth our identity and sexuality being the points that most excite and fascinate me. 

:How would you define the attitude of your generation of artists?

:YAAAS! Bored, nervous, excited, productive, lazy, fun everything-all-at-oncers. There are so many people with varying agendas. While the consciousness of the market increases and the inability of anyone but the rich to live in any of the worlds metropolis' it can sometimes feel as though only one kind of voice is being heard. But the attitude is still very eager and hungry. Which is exciting.
