Interview 1 - January 2020

Hello Ira, Here are the answers and a picture. Let me know if you want longer answers/more info, etc.

  1. Where are you now?

San Cristóbal de las Casas, Chiapas, Mexico

  1.  What is your current art practice?

I am mostly working on a tree-to-bar chocolate project, which means that from the ingredients of the Mexican jungle, we make chocolate bars. It is very beautiful because it connects the environment, chocolate making and the community. (here is Alkymia’s page- I.M.) I also practice yoga which keeps my body happy and alive.

  1.  What is the rubberbodies collective for you?

The rubberbodies collective is an evolving family. It is a group of artists scattered all over the planet who at different moments come together to make, erase, rewrite, search, lose and dream.

  1.  What is lined up in the near future?

I am currently in the process of working on a solo piece in parallel with two other artists here in Mexico who are also making individual pieces. We often feel stranded in our creative processes and sharing it, creates questions and looking for answers, nourishes it .

  1.  Anything else you want to share/tell/show/preach (smart or mundane; the last link you watched – article- book – horoscope – love message)

Here is a quote from an Argentinian singer/songwriter Atahualpa Yupanqui:Lo que dentra a la cabeza – De la cabeza se vaLo que dentra al corazón – Se queda y no se va más.(What enters the head, leaves from the head what enters the heart stays and doesn’t leave anymore.)
