Questionary from Laurence Verdier for Monika Brugger
If only one word in the French language remained, what would it be?
Who is your personal saint?
What does your mother think of your work?
She is probably unaware of everything I do, even though she was the person who helped it all
Your favourite occupation?
And what’s your biggest ordeal?
What bugs you?
My insect pins called ‘éphèmerdes’
What forest would you like to get lost in?
The Black Forest.
What is your best dress for going dancing?
The one by Yamamoto.
When did you leave your childhood behind?
I’ve certainly left it behind, but I couldn’t tell you exactly where the border lies between childhood and adulthood.
On which occasions have you worn your black dresses?
Back in 2011, every day, to see if they worked.
What national holiday would you like to invent?
I have a problem with the concept ‘national’.
What would you do if you could only keep one finger?
The middle one, to bring any arguments to a swift conclusion
If you were reborn as an insect?
Flies are too horrible to think about and yet they are a real pain and really boring … that might work well with my character.
What beverage would you like to dip your Lécher les doigts spoon in?
A yoghurt ice cream.
What alliance is most important to you?
What would you like people to give you as a birthday present?
Just being there. Because that’s the most difficult thing of all on 25th December!
What work would you like to have created?
‘Brosche Brosche Brosche’ by Manfred Niesmüller.
What Robert dictionary would you like to see at your exhibition?
The only one: the one by Alain Rey.
What is the most difficult kind of exile?
To be apart from ourselves, with the most physical self, nothing to do with a place.
What jewellery would you like to receive as a present?
I don’t need jewellery. A ‘Robert’ geranium, perhaps, but no jewellery.
