Read Back Talk with Seripop below.

How do you feel right now?

 

Yannick: Fine, thank you                
Chloe: Pretty good, just waking up  and about to have breakfast and  go to the studio. We’re printing a monolith right now so I’m both really excited and really tired. Long days and night on the press.

 

If you could wake up in a different place tomorrow morning, where would it be and what would you do?

 

Yannick: I guess I would wake up at the studio instead of my house and I’ll be printing stuff. I don’t see how any other parallel universe could happen.
Chloe: I wouldn’t mind waking up to the same life  I have, but in another city.

 

If you lost your creative skill, how would you see yourself making a living?

 

Yannick: Busking (doing covers, of course).
Chloe: At this point I’m not sure if I could.

If you could punch one living contemporary artist, who would it be?

 

Yannick : Carl Andre with a Nan Goldin mask.
Chloe : He already knows who he is.

 

Was your first kiss worth writing a song about?

 

Yannick: I guess. It would be a lame short shitty awkward song with polyrythms and atonality, No repetition. Not catchy at all.
Chloe:It was in the parking lot of a mall, so probably not.

 

At what point were you particularly happy?

 

Yannick: I don’t think that ever happened.
Chloe: Today.

Chloe

Yannick

 

No regrets allowed, but there must have been one?

 

Yannick: I guess not figuring out I was an artist before 18.
Chloe: It’s better to regret something you have done then to regret something you haven’t done.

 

What trait do your friends have in common?

 

Yannick: Loud mouthed nerds.
Chloe: They are all scroungy fuckin’ jammers.

 

If you had to evacuate your home or studio, what's the one thing you would grab?
Yannick: A pair of pants
Chloe: My cats, and if a I had a free hand the doodle Savage Pencil did for us.

Greatest love of your life?

 

Yannick: My creative partner.
Chloe: Yannick.

 

What is your favorite vice?

 

Yannick: Reading the news.
Chloe: Crate diggin’.

 

When you blow out the birthday candles, what do you wish for?

 

Yannick: Just doesn’t happen.
Chloe: I don’t remember the last time I had candles to blow…


If you could play a character from a favorite film or TV show for a day, who would it be?

 

Yannick: The moustache dude in Money by Bresson.
Chloe: Franz Biberkopf.

 

Do you ever lie?

 

Yannick: I’m about to lie down and take a nap.
Chloe: I’m lying right now.

 

Do you think viewers understand the intent of your work?

 

Yannick: Not so sure. But, this is for me to make available the vulgarization of the content of my work.
Chloe: Fucked if I know, other people are a pretty big question mark to me.

What virtue can you do without?

 

Yannick: Faith.
Chloe: Modesty.

 

Do you even notice when you're swearing?

 

Yanick: Usually.
Chloe: No.

 

What has been your proudest moment?

 

Yannick: Happens each time a project gets done.
Chloe: Every time we pick up a stack of prints back from the cutter.

 

What would you like to be remembered for?

 

Yannick: My body of work.
Chloe: Doing things and makin’ stuff.

 

How would you prefer to die? 

 

Yannick: Dying.
Chloe: Hundred-sided
