Catherine Ringer

Catherine half of the French pop group Les Rita Mitsouko. They had some big new wave hits in the ‘80s. I was unaware of Les Rita until I was trawling around on YouTube for videos of Sparks and came upon a video of a collaboration of the two groups:

Unfortunately the video has been taken down.

My jaw immediately dropped when this Catherine Ringer woman came on the screen. Really unexplainable movements and a look in her eye that was possessed. Jesus- and she’s beautiful. Just look at this video for their song “Marcia Balla”

Look at those serpentine movements!

I did some searching on her and found out she did some pretty amazing porn in the ‘70s along with some avant-garde theatre work. Her porn is pretty stunning in itself- a lot of shots of fucking a broom, shitting in a guy’s mouth…but through it all she exhibits a strange sense of humor that can also be found in the Les Rita Mitsouko work. I would post these pictures but I know they would be hotlinked to shit. But here is another stunning video from the group:

Mollusk Magazine

German/French magazine Mollusk recently ran a great six page spread of my work in their third issue. It feautures a ton of great artists as well- Stéphane Blanquet (one of my favorites), Charles Krafft, Engelbert Kivernagel, Peter Sköld, Merle Allin, Unpop, John Casey, Claudia Ahlering, Larry Carroll, Xavier Robel (Elvis Studio), Solange Reboul, Crosshair, Shoboshobo / Mehdi Hercberg, and M-City. The magazine is put out by the fantastic screenprinters/publishers Bongoût. Follow the Mollusk link for ordering information.

One of the best parts of the magazine is seeing my writing translated into French. I'm very curious how the translation translates.
