  • Litro interview: Hsin Wang
    a cliché topic but we can t help but think about it Litro What is your guiltiest pleasure Hsin Sometimes when I m so full that my stomach feels like it s running out of space or I m going to explode I ll still have one more bite of ice cream Litro How long did it take you to complete De Selfing Hsin De Selfing was my thesis project for my Masters degree at The School of Visual Arts so there was a lot of pressure for me to work it develop it and finish it on time I only had about 6 months However that was the most intense and worthwhile 6 months of my life to push myself to dig into all my feelings out and force myself to feel the pain again and again Litro What s your earliest childhood memory Hsin This question is probably the most difficult one Sometimes I feel like my memory is like a goldfish There is one childhood memory that somehow keeps coming back to me My brother and I got lost in a subway station in Tokyo at rush hour I was probably 10 years old The whole time we held our hands tightly and tried to pass through crowds We barely could see which way to go Everyone looked like giants to us That anxiety of not being able to find the way home is still coming back to me maybe because I don t really know where my home is yet I m still looking for it Litro How do you relax Hsin I just got into biking again a few months ago and I am loving it When I slow down New York City becomes a slow motion movie Because there is a distance between me and the people on the streets so I can see clearly that other people are living their lives they are laughing fighting singing daydreaming chasing a bus carrying laundry etc This makes me feel so small but also somehow peaceful Litro Can you give us your top 5 10 tips for budding photographers Hsin Tip 1 Help out with your photographer friends projects as much as you can Tip 2 Don t be shy to ask for their opinions about your work Tip 3 Find workshops portfolio reviews or programs to attend in order to expand your community of photographers Tip 4 Plan a photo walk or gallery walk with them Discuss discuss discuss Tip 5 If you like someone s work let them know write them a short email or share their work on social media You never know what kind of relationships you might build with your favorite artists Litro How would you define creativity Hsin To me creativity means entirely abandoning criticism and self doubt It means being honest to yourself being bold and transforming your message into the artform and the aesthetics that you feel communicates it best Litro In an internationalist interconnected world ideas and

  • Accident Report
    young for my age It s partly down to good genes but it s mostly because I take care of myself Then something else occurred to me Unlikely as it was I realised with disgust that they might think I was with the woman I looked down the aisle searching for Briony For a moment I was absorbed by the spectacle of a family of salad dodgers trying to squeeze themselves into the soft deep folds of a huge sofa When I turned back I realised the woman was staring at me expectantly head cocked to one side Meeting her eyes for the first time I could see she had a slight squint almost unnoticeable but it was there nonetheless I stared back hoping she d repeat whatever it was she d asked Christmas I said Did you have a good Christmas I nodded You I had a whole tin of chocolates all to myself It was great I ate the whole lot All myself Didn t have to share them with nobody it was lovely There was a long pause like she was expecting me to respond so I said That s nice I remember she smiled and nodded slightly as though she was confirming I d responded correctly then she started looking around again whether for an assistant or her missing child I couldn t tell I turned away too and for a moment and found myself thinking about Briony s ever grinning team leader until her voice somewhere behind me cut into my thoughts Babe come and see these bookshelves There in a minute Angel I m just trying this sofa out Hurry up I m over here when you re done The woman semi reclining on the sofa said Is that your wife She s lovely The woman s approval meant less than nothing to me but I still felt that little glow of pride You know what I mean Even so I was spectacularly bored by that time and despite the repulsion I felt for the woman I began to wonder what it would be like to kiss her Not that I wanted to you ve got to believe me She was a mess There was no way I would have done anything but I still imagined pushing her back into the cheap colour matched cushions kissing her hard on her slack lips and while her voice droned on I started to imagine what noises she would make if I pressed my fingers between her legs and acquiescence turned to arousal Like I said I was bored I pulled myself to my feet and headed off to where I d last seen Briony Then I made a long slow circuit of the showroom I wasn t in a hurry to catch up with her I sat in dozens of chairs stretch out sofas read price lists and collected brochures I don t know why I was doing it the whole shopping thing that is Ever since I found Briony s diary the whole thing about living together seemed temporary I wasn t even shocked when I read about what she d done with Neil after the office party What really shook me was that she was stupid enough to write it down That and the level of detail in which she d been inspired to record what they d done All of it I looked up at an advertising banner on the wall We travel the world to bring our customers the very best in contemporary design the best craftsmanship and the most up to date styles Did I want to waste all that quality on somebody so fucking thick At least if I spent the money on a new car I could drive it away when it all went to shit I ended up back in the cheap seats The woman was still there There were more paper cups on the coffee table now Other people had come and gone Serious customers who had been given complimentary coffee She smiled as I approached Ain t you made your mind up yet I shook my head You I like this one It s nicer than the others You don t fancy one of the leather suites then I nodded my head towards the pricey end of the shop where Briony was encamped with a sales rep No I think I d like this one As if to prove it she leaned over the back of the sofa toward the aisle where a salesman was passing Could I get your help with something He doesn t look at her Sorry I m with a customer at the moment I found myself saying Another customer you mean I don t know why I felt like defending her maybe it was just the oily little salesman that annoyed me Maybe the lack of a free coffee had finally gotten to me He paused for a moment thinking before repeating I m with a customer at the moment He crossed the showroom to a woman in a trouser suit who spoke a little too loudly unembarrassed by the volume of her voice Yah we liked that one too Not sure about the colour though The drab little woman snubbed by the salesman started looking around her again but with a sudden urgency as though she was suddenly panicking about something she d forgotten Then she started going on about her fucking kid again Billy I ll kill that boy when I find him He s always running off getting into trouble Always He is She carried on talking but I didn t really hear anything she said for a while I began to wonder where her kid Billy was and what the little shit was up to but then in a moment of horror I saw Briony looking a little too thoughtfully at a suite that exuded comfort and homeliness It was vast and soft with large cushions hung

  • The Science of Parting: The Persecution of Nadezhda and Osip Mandelstam
    in military uniforms arrived with a warrant for his arrest She never saw him again For years after Osip s death Nadezhda waded through rumour fantasy and deliberate lies to discover what had happened to her husband She sheltered the former prisoner Kazarnovski from the police for three months hoping to extract information Kazarnovski she wrote possessed a memory like a huge rancid pancake in which fact and fancy from his prison days had been mixed up together and baked into an inseparable mess 12 This was a typical state of affairs among people recently released from the gulag There was the same jumble of truth and falsehood the past fragmented by suffering Listening to these accounts she noted I was horrified at the thought that there might be nobody who could ever properly bear witness to the past Whether inside or outside the camps we had all lost our memories 13 Nadezhda s writing is a gesture against the death of that collective memory On her own moving from place to place to escape arrest she repeated Osip s poetry to herself His writing was entrusted to friends and acquaintances sometimes disappearing forever What is most remarkable is that the poetry survived at all In one case Natasha Shtempel the subject of some of Mandelstam s final poems fled with them on foot as she escaped the invading German army The number of extant Mandelstam poems gives weight to his wiry remark that Poetry is respected only in this country people are killed for it There s no place where more people are killed for it 14 In an age where politics depend on falsehood a regard for reality is the greatest form of resistance The fundamental drive in Nadezhda s work was veracity both in terms of her husband s life and what the revolution had become She clearly documented the degree of conviction it took not to crumble under the weight of the regime Towards the end of his life Osip attempted to write an ode to Stalin in order to save himself and his wife He wrote said Nadezhda with a noose around his neck 15 Later he asked for the poem to be destroyed Normal moral expectations had become blurred by years of propaganda backed by terror Christian morality including the ancient commandment Thou shalt not kill was blithely identified with bourgeois morality 16 Those who attempted to push back were chastised not merely by the law but also those closest to them The terrible allure of ideology extended to everyone Even the most strong minded were paralyzed by the romance of revolution and ruthless drive towards the future Fear also played its part We all took the easy way out by keeping silent in the hope that not we but our neighbours would be killed 17 There was no reward for resistance The consequence was at best obscurity and isolation In rejecting the state dissidents gave up any chance of normalcy forgoing work housing
