Photobucket
there can’t be any more planes in my life for longtemps

Photobucket
i must not have my eyes see things like this for longtemps

Photobucket
oh no!!!
i arrived in moscow and there was “problem with visa” and they yelled at me and deported me to Ukraine!!!!
i’m not kidding

Photobucket
i must not have to ride airport bus for longtemps even though that part is kinda fun

Photobucket
this is ukraine money
how much ukraine money do i need to pay to not miss my opening

Photobucket
i will sit at sad youth hostel by Kiev airport while the nice ladies at Garage figure that out
i will read GQ and have soul lag and feel depressed and my heart clenched like a raisin with panic

Photobucket
my heart is a collapsing raising that says “you have been working on this show for a year and are missing it”

Photobucket
ten hour flight and deportation makes me look like this
my heart is a small clenched collapsed thing

Photobucket
my stomach also clenching with unhappiness

Photobucket
hey! i can at least show you this neat thing while we wait

Photobucket
oh no look at that sub-header
oh boy
ack

Photobucket
i wrote dis

Photobucket
can you read it? i dont have a scanner. read it! its funny

“why are you so hot and how long have you been this way?”

Photobucket
next morning, one more plane and cross my fingers!!!

Photobucket
please please let me have nice opening and not sit in youth hostel

Photobucket
maybe i was not grateful enough, maybe i needed kiev time out so i could sit and think
“i must live my life in a way so that i am the girl going to her museum opening at glamorous beautiful Garage and not girl sitting in tub at youth hostel”

Photobucket
and i made it!

Photobucket
oh thank everything

Photobucket
the last thing to do was find lost bag at other airport

Photobucket
i said mini prayers as the car service whizzed by churches

Photobucket
i can’t wear my dad’s stinky plaid shirt and H+M leggings to my opening
please dont make me
please let me change my underwear and socks too

Photobucket
horay!!!
just in time

Photobucket
just in time!

Photobucket
just in time

Photobucket
ahhhh
my heart is expanding and pumping as normal and embracing all around me

Photobucket
terence went and blessed each work in the show

Photobucket

Photobucket

Photobucket

Photobucket

Photobucket
he sniffed josh butt

Photobucket
he partied with some hippies

Photobucket
oop whered he go

Photobucket
whered he go

Photobucket

Photobucket
and there he will sit!

Photobucket
you guys
you know how i suck and in what ways
there are no photos of the installation on my camera
we are at mercy of Garage to send me them. then we will all look together

Photobucket
dont even be mad at me! barry is not mad. barry is even giving his email to random russian taggers. he is generous, please be generous with me

Photobucket
everyone loved the opening and was inspired to kiss

Photobucket
we went to fun dinner and Roman Abramovitch came wow! now that is just crazy.
it was so dark and wonderful and kathy decided to retire her camera for a sec and just
ENJOY BEING DONE

Photobucket
then we captured olga and went out

Photobucket
then we went to the ritz

Photobucket

Photobucket
it was olga’s birthday!!!

Photobucket
she had taken jack and john for tatoos that afternoon

Photobucket
please lets all be happy, and not have raisins for hearts, just roses!

Photobucket
and lets stay out until sunrise to have more more more life

Photobucket
lets wake up in a few hours and give a lecture

Photobucket
thank goodness i had friends with me!
poor kathy so little sleep

Photobucket
the translator

Photobucket
look how hot kembra looks in her texas pantsuit in the kiddie seat

Photobucket

Photobucket
Dubossarsky and Vinogradov the best russian artists took us to lunch of pizza and sushi

Photobucket
hot sushi
that is how you say SUCK MY DICK in russian

Photobucket
we had a driver who taught us all the best things to say
all the important phrases we would need while in russia

Photobucket
hot sushi sooka!

Photobucket
hot sushi pidaross!

Photobucket
hot sushi jeffrey jessie and josh!
just kidding
its funny that jeffrey is by far the most up beat and happy and relaxed guy in this dinner photo

Photobucket
stuffy dinners are much more fun with hot jack saying a bunch of crazy shit to people

Photobucket
we are at cafe pushkin which looks like it is 1850s but really like 1970s
russia does not like “old” or “second hand”. there are no thrift stores and no junk shops
when you ask for them, they say “why do you want old gross clothes someone else wore”

Photobucket
which sorta makes sense
look! its the head lady Dasha Zhukova who is awesome

Photobucket
brains, beauty, bodacious art museum owning, pretty fantastic
like this photo of jeffrey trying to read his iphone

Photobucket
like this photo of kembra and waitress lady

Photobucket
kapow! we are in some club and salem are doing their thing

Photobucket

Photobucket
that’s aleksey from garage. he had to scramble to set this all up for us and did an amazing job and it was so much work he told me with regret that night that he had to take, how do you say it, speed to get this all done

Photobucket
hahahahahahahaha!

Photobucket

Photobucket
so you guys this thing they have made, this hour long art piece, video, DJ music explosion mega work, soon you must see this in NYC

Photobucket
we just need to get the keys to the new space and then we can screen this in our new creepy basement before we renovate

Photobucket
that’s right everyone. we are about to get keys to a huge gaping hole

Photobucket
everything must go perfectly this week though or the hole maybe does not get to open! noooooo!!!!!

Photobucket
please dog in heaven let everything go perfectly

Photobucket
do not sent me to time out in kiev, just send me to the bowery to run an art gallery!!!!

Photobucket

Photobucket
two hours later

Photobucket
good morning moscow!

Photobucket

Photobucket

my favourite thing
the thing that launched my dreams

Photobucket
that made me convulse with a sense of beauty

Photobucket

Photobucket

Photobucket

Photobucket
