Just back from an intense and wondrous trip to my heart's home in New York, filled with so many wonderful artist visits - it was a “cup brimmeth over” situation, in general as well as for these polls...let's start with Sue de Beer

Sue and I most recently worked together on LAND’s exhibition, Nothing Beside Remains, which took place throughout the town of Marfa, TX.  Her installation was on view at The Do Right Hall from December 10, 2011 – February 11, 2012 (more information here).  We have worked together numerous times in the past and I’ll be contributing an upcoming feature on her in Flash Art Magazine. 

Here’s our weekly poll:

1.) Name three things you would consider worth cutting off your pinky for (of non-dominant hand).

SdB: My daughter, my daughter, my daughter.

2.) If you were a vegetable/fruit, an animal, and a piece of furniture, respectively, which one of each would you be? 

SdB: Blueberry, wolf, wooden cabinet/wardrobe with a mirrored front (possible magical properties, from turn of last century).

3.) If you could add one sentence/amendment to the constitution, what would it be?

SdB: Thou shall not elect anyone named "Bush" to office.

4.) If you could only eat/drink one type of thing forever, what would it be? For clarity: one breakfast, one lunch, one dinner, one drink, one dessert, one snack (no multi-course meals allowed).

SdB: Steak frites.

5.) If you could read someone's mind for an hour - either living now or a fictional character (hence always living) - who would it be and why?

SdB: Fassbinder. I want to know about his writing ritual.
