Miranda July at the Venice Biennale

Eleven Heavy Things is a collection of Miranda July’s sculptures that are currently on display at the Venice Biennale.

The latest issue of Interview magazine has a great piece on the works, supplemented with an interview of sorts, in which different creative people ask Miranda questions.

My favorite exchange was #15, with Carrie Brownstein of Sleater-Kinney.

“Carrie: What daily ritual that you perform makes you feel the safest, and why?

Miranda: I eat an egg every morning, and when I’m done, I almost always have the thought: There. Now even if I’m captured and starved, I’ll be able to live off the protein of that egg for a while.”
