Here is what Valerie has to say -
MEOW by valerie phillips, starring Arvida Bystrom
A few weeks ago my friend Milene showed me a self-portrait by a girl called Arvida. She’d titled it Lick Fuck Luck. I loved it so much, I flew her from Sweden to spend the weekend with me in a big empty house in East London, so I could take pictures of her. We painted on walls, drank coffee and talked about all the random things we like.
Arvida makes art mostly using her camera.
She is 20 years old.
She washes her hair, max, once a week.
She has a hopelessly unrequited love of cats.
She is allergic to them, so instead of the real thing, she surrounds herself with plastic ones. And stickers.
Her favourite colours are pink and rainbow.
She likes trance, techno and house.
And she dresses in her own peculiar style, what I’d call girly intellectual hip hop.
We decided to swap self portraits.
