How many languages are you fluent in?
To be honest, I’d only use the word fluent to describe this one (my definition of fluency would be the ability to hold a good conversation).
From lack of necessity, I’ve not really spoken much French for a few years, so I’m not that confident with it anymore. My Japanese has improved dramatically over the past few months, but I wouldn’t call myself fluent in it just yet. I’m still working on that. I know fragments of a couple of others, but not really enough to communicate above a basic level.
I’d genuinely like to correct this because lots of English speakers have the luxury of being lazy. Some even argue that they don’t need to learn another language because “everyone speaks English”. This, in my experience, is most certainly not the case. However, lots of people worldwide (an estimated 500 million I believe) speak English as a second or third language – and the fact that those people speak two or three languages while most English speakers I’ve met speak only one rather seems to prove that point.
Alexa Meade,Submerges Her Subject in a Pool of Milk
In collaboration with Sheila Vand, Alexa Meade explores what happens when the canvas becomes a pool of cream. Mixing borders, expressive artists compose an identity for each image.
The artist Alexa Meade has invented a technique of painting on the surfaces of objects, people and architectural spaces to optically compress 3D space in a 2D plane. It is known for its "tableaux vivants", where the bodies of his subjects become the canvas. Since 2012, she collaborated with the actress Sheila Vand performance on a range of projects covering various media.
In the spirit of artistic recreation, “MILK”: what will you make of me?” Is their first album together. The work explores the fluidity of form over time and space.
