10 Questions – 10 Answers

– Where would you like to wake up tomorrow morning?
– On the North side of the Lake Balaton, in a house.

– What was your greatest rebellion as a teenager?
– I quit learning and always reported that I didn’t prepare for class.

What would you do, if you wouldn’t be doing what you do now?
– I wouldn’t do anything else, but art! Basically any kind of profession, which requires creative, productive attitude and active thinking, something that positively supports and encourages creating.

– What year would you type into a time machine, and why?
– I don’t know an exact date, I would rather chose an era, a stylistic period. I would like to live in the heydays of art nouveau and art deco.

– What are the first three items on your bucket list?
– I don’t have a bucket list. I anticipate and welcome with open arms whatever life has in store for me, and try to live these moments to the fullest. If I would have a bucket list, it would be a pressure on me to cross all the items from the list… and it would take the power of surprise away, and the chance to welcome the unexpected gifts with joy, and the not so pleasurable ones with a positive attitude.

– What ’superficial’ things do you waste your time with?
– Superficial things… I believe nothing is superficial, we can learn from anything. Even superficial things are there to remind us of their superficiality, and by learning from them, we can evolve, reflect on them and become able to recognize the useless, wasteful nature of these.

– Which historical figure or fictive personality would you like to share a cup of coffee/tea or a glass of wine with?
– I can list many persons. First of all, women with a bold personality. Women, who were exceptional in some way. Virginia Woolf, Madame de Pompadour, Coco Chanel, George Sand, Jeanne d'Arc,.... etc.

– What is your oldest piece of clothing?
– My first baby shoes.

– Do you have any superstitions or rituals before entering the stage?
– I cross myself and look up to my loved ones, who already passed away…

– How do you see yourself in ten years?
– God’s ways are unsearchable… still, I am striving towards creating something imperishable, an art work, which can leave a mark, even if for a small group.
