Au programme, 10 designs différents déclinés en sérigraphies “regular” et “variant”, ainsi que des originaux et des variantes embellies à la main. Un show incontournable pour les chanceux qui habitent la Californie, pour les autres pas de panique : les prints seront mis en vente le 7 juillet sur la boutique en ligne de la Spoke Art.

“You’re one to talk about odds, didn’t you get it right the first time–isn't that what you’re always bragging about? What makes you so fucking special? ”

from “Californie” by Jill Koenigsdorf:

I had never been to Europe before my arrival in Paris and had never seen a castle outside the pages of a fairy tale book. I wanted this job, whatever it was. So, apparently, did the other thirty girls who were lined up outside when I arrived. A gaunt man motioned us into a courtyard. He was wearing a linen suit the color of butter, and clapped his hands once, telling us to form a line. He asked each of us one single question: Where are you from? Simply for answering “Californie,” I was hired, along with Ana, the girl who answered “Barcelona.” Our new employer, Jacques, explained that he had fond memories of those two places, and thought that was a fine criterion. He introduced his wife Hélène who reminded me of a freshly groomed Afghan, all swishy, shiny, and leggy. And Ana and I became Barcelone and Californie.

Jacques picked us up in a red convertible sports car that he drove at hair-raising speeds from Paris to the château. Everything felt new to me, the monumental size and age of the château, the stone barn where Ana and I would sleep, and the dream-like vision of a dozen nuns gliding though the mist that first dawn, the hems of their long habits darkened with dew. Ana explained that they were there to bless the fishermen.

“Rome is burning,” he said, as he poured himself another drink. “Yet here I am knee-deep in a river of pussy.”

“Here it comes,” she thought. “Another self-indulgent, wiskhey soaked dad talking about how fucking great everything was in the past.”

And how all us poor souls born too late to see the Stones at where ever or snort the good coke like they had at Studio 54… Well, we’d all just missed out on practically everything worth living for. And the worst part was, she agreed with him.

“Here we are,” she thought. “At the very edge of western civilization and all of us are so desprate to feel something. Anything that we keep falling on to each other and fucking our way towards the end of days.”
