Interview with the English artist, James Gilleard.
Where would you go in case of global zombie attack?
I’d have to say in a hi-rise tower like in 28 Days Later. I’m not sure how long I’d last but it seems like your best shot. I know I drew a boarded-up cabin but that seems like an easy target. UNLESS it was high up on a hill with a 360° vantage point.
In french, ‘glander’ means waste time, slack off, procrastinate. Do you think your name in french applies to you?
Well, everyone goofs around sometimes, right? I hope so. I don’t really procrastinate much, but there is a lot of structured slacking in my life. Taking weird, long breaks in the middle of my workday to nap or skateboard is an integral part of my process. I would be hugely burnt out and uninspired out if I didn’t fit some time-wasting time into each day. Idk, maybe I’ve been subconsciously shaped by my name. I’m guess okay with that!
