How I Went to New York Lily Van der Stokker - How I Went to New York
L'autobiographie illustrée de Lily Van der Stokker, qui raconte sa vie à New York dans les années 1980, époque à laquelle elle ouvre une galerie dans le East Village.
« The story I am going to tell is a story that Jack had said several times we should make a film of. In those days I was never interested in writing down everything, but here it is: With a girlfriend I decided to travel to New York. It was meant to not be a short holiday. We thought it was the coolest place to go to. If we could survive in New York, that would be the ultimate challenge.
I told more than Jack intended me to tell, but I did it the way he said it: "Write it down, the Six Street Gallery story and all the things that happened with you, because it sounds like a movie". »
Née en 1954 à Hertogenbosch, Pays-Bas, Lily Van der Stokker vit et travaille à Amsterdam et à New York. A partir de 1983, depuis sa Hollande natale, elle a parcouru le monde de l'art en gribouillant les murs des musées et des institutions les plus prestigieuses de ses peintures acides. Tour à tour mettant en scène le bonheur naïf et les apostrophes amoureuses puis graduellement trouvant dans des citations, annotations autobiographiques ou fictionnelles un langage plus acerbe et grinçant, ces investigations murales se déploient en des compositions formelles parfaitement maîtrisées dont les couleurs acidulées ont su garder toute la fraîcheur adolescente.
