SickBitchCrips interviews artist Katherine Araniello

12 October 2015


SBC: Katherine, why are you choosing to make such dull, disinteresting work that we can’t stand listening to and watching? Katherine: There are many layers to this work. Firstly, we live in a society in which competitiveness is instilled into us and to be noticeable, one is expected to sell themselves like a whore so that we are wanted and desired by all… SBC: Yes Katherine, but you are a whore and a cunt and this work is pathetic and bland. Is it a contradiction of your real self?...
