Lily Van der Stokker on beauty and ugliness, the fine line…and Isa Genzken too

Lily Van der Stokker on beauty and ugliness, the fine line

“I adore pitiful little things that make you want to cry and hold somebody. There is a work from 1992 that I sold several times. It has the text: “Poor (old) abstract art.” I love saying “Poor baby!”, or “Poor Vincent van Gogh”. One of my favourite lines is: “Women are very good at crying. And I think they should be getting paid for it.”

How open and out there and unsentimentally sentimental
