Video Interview With Artist Andrea Wan On Her First Solo Show in Denmark

Here’s a lovely interview with my friend, Hong Kong-born, Berlin-based, artist Andrea Wan as she prepares for her first solo show, in Denmark. Vancouver really misses you Andrea, me especially.

I love the part where she talks about the improvised stories she used to tell into a tape recorder when she was younger. Things like that can unlock ideas that are buried deep in your subconscious.

My mom kept an old journal of mine from grade 3, and when I found it a few years ago, it was hilarious to see how many of the stories were about someone getting lost. It didn’t matter if it was a boy, a snail, a knight. No matter what happened in the beginning and middle of my stories, somewhere near the end, whoever it was, they got lost. I guess it was my biggest fear at the time.
