A couple of years ago I got in contact with Olga Varova a creative living in Paris. The bond was unique and eccentric; death, red lips, broken dreams and a lust for bold uncensored images of society and thyself. Go within yourself and find Mr. Lynch when experiencing this one.
DEATH MIGHT BE THE END ;; BUT WE ARE PRESENT
Why did facing yourself unleash a creative renaissance?
Its not cause only facing myself , its the whole thing that tighten me up , little by little , then something was about to happen , i could feel it and i was in need . I arrived to the point where i could talk to myself through my creativity. The dialogue has started and pawww ! I said to myself - ,, this is it ,, ! I started to experience a sensational feeling !
Lets talk about Daydream, what favorite moments were compiled into the book?
I did some prints, portraits of people i photograph. By sitting in the kitchen floor i put those prints surround me , lighten my cigarette and looked at them . Memories has come around , situations , conversations . And i said to myself ,,- why not to make a book? ,, and put it all together. I called my boyfriend at that time and told him ,,-Hey Alex, what do you think ? I wanna make a book . And he replied ;,, you gotta do it ,, I did ! Every page in a book , every photograph seem like an instant ,but its way much more to me than this . Its a long story , each face ! Each face is there , that kinda magic and fantastic thing to me .
I kinda liked this kinda game with myself by escaping the reality. Escaping the past . But in same time i wanted the past be present in me , cause it was giving me so much creativity. feelings was twisted a bit . And i liked it . I wanted to make much more .
Do you think fashion is the most percise way to encapsulate our dreams?
Fashion is one of the aspects of art . So yeah , here your dreams comes all around . Im not that kinda of person who is into fashion , but the things now days are all merged together . I would like to see more fashion in cinema as we could see it in 70s and 80s . We’ve seen Jean Paul Gaultier in Almodovar movies , in beautiful movie by Peter Greenaway ,, the cook, the thief , his wife and her lover . We’ve seen Yves Saint Laurent in Belle de jour by Luis Bunuel . And so on . As long as fashion going among with art its gonna be a real dream for all of us. Fashion as an art but not as a business . Thats kinda encapsulate my dreams.
How did your collaboration come about with Paz De La Huerta, is she your Agent Cooper?
Ive met Paz a month ago . We shoot together a fashion story with my husband Alex Brunet (he is a fashion photographer) for english magazine Buffalo . We really liked working together and we had a great connection , she is amazing ! Thats how we end up working on a very personal project .We are having so much fun . She is such an inspiration ! Incredible woman , an actress , an artist . Agent Cooper ? hahahaha , i think we are more like Laura Palmer and Teresa Banks .
Is the medium message or do we message through the medium?
Art is all about action and reaction .The world is filled with stuff , so here we are , in art trying to balance it . I don’t do anything to message , im just making what i feel to make . If someone getting a message , well , thats great ! So we are reacting ! We are connected .
