DAVID BOWIE IS HERE!!!! Damn yes Pips!!! And Dani yesterday went to the V&A to amuse herself with this rather extraordinary creature!!! Thanks a billion to Mr Venanzio Calo’ who booked the tickets!!!
The exhibition opens with the most inspiring sentence ever: ” All art is unstable. Its meaning is not necessarily that implied by the author. There is no authoritative voice. There are only multiple readings.” Mr Bowie.
When i read this i couldn’t believe how perfeclty well it did embrace my own idea of Art! I’ve always looked at Art in the whole. Finding inspiration from anything and never imposing a reaction to the viewer or the reader. All arts are strictly connected to one another through a very fragile but strong emotional journey that rips the heart apart.
A B C is my motto!! Always Be Curious!!! and like Bowie, in my artistic path as an actress, and as a human being, i’ve always been very alert to every single thing around me and, first of all, attentive to my emotions and other’s reactions!!!
The Bowie experience is unmissable to remind ourselves that we can definitely be what WE WANT TO BE!!!
Not to talk about the impact that Mr Ziggy Stardust has had on Fashion!
He was the first real postmodern pop star: bisexual Messiah, with lipgloss and mascara, silver jumpsuit and platform boots. A strange hybrid of androgynous spaceman, rent-boy Elvis and rock’n’roll glitter queen as Dylan Jones descibes him.
Generations of designers have been inspired by him and always will like will all the rest of the humanity to come!!!
I would love to wrap up my article with another touching sentence from Mr Bowie that brought tears to my eyes:
I COULD NEVER THINK OF PUTTING SOMETHING ON STAGE THAT DOESN’T OWN SOMETHING TO THEATRE.
Enjoy pips and if you can go and live this outrageously divine show!!!
And don’t forget that after a silence of almost a decade , the greatest White Duke has released a surprise single on his 66th birthday and a new album: THE NEXT DAY!!!
