WHATS YOUR SIGNATURE?
Somewhere better than this place / Nowhere better than this place
I have two posters in my house which I picked up for free at an exhibition years ago. It was an exhibition by the artist Felix Gonzalez-Torres and there were two stacks of posters you could take. One read ‘Somewhere better than this place’ and the other ‘Nowhere better than this place’. I took both of them, and hung them side by side. These words help me in any situation.
I’m the lead singer in a band called Woman’s Hour and we released our debut album ‘Conversations’ earlier this year. We’ve spent the last six weeks touring across the UK and Europe. I just got back last night, so I’m currently unpacking my suitcase and thinking about making another coffee…
