Hi, I’m Gwenn, I’m an art student from France currently contemplating life and its possibilities in a one year “far far away from school, please”. Right now, I’m in my third month stay in Berlin. I took this year after my bachelor degree to live some wild experiences, to meet people, and to get independence in my work and my mind. I thought it would be interesting to have a penpal since it’s a pretty unique way to learn and share from others. A list of my interests : - Arts (from contemporary art, Comic books to drawing characters in a napkin because you’re bored) - Horror’s stuff related (my péché mignon sorry) - Staying long time in coffee shop rambling about anything (if you know what I’m talking about!) - Ginger in my coffee …
So, to my future penpal, nice to meet you !!
Preferences: I don’t care about gender and age but if you’re a creative person, it would be really cool since I’m eager to hear about what you do and sharing stories and advices .
If you respect the fact I’m not a fluent english speaker and I can do mistake, you’re perfect !
3.2.17// nice stay in this cozy coffee shop. I had a mint-ginger Tea with a friend, we went to a vintage second-hand market and then we had a nice talk by Shakespeare and co. Then I stayed for some time reading from Rainald Goetz´s roman Irre for my Monday seminar. I love the Shakespeare and co. aesthetic and I love even more their book collection (practically the largest English book collection in the city after Dussmann). I found there a novel by Susan Sontag I was looking for for a while and unfortunately, I couldn´t find the short-stories collection by Lucia Berlin. Apparently, it must have been stolen. Whoever did it was kind of smart guy with good tastes in literature.
