MUM ALWAYS SAID IT'S BETTER TO ARRIVE LATE THAN UGLY

Frieze London Rumors.

  • Oct 22 2021
  • Carla Garlaschi
     (b. Chile) aka Princess Prada is a visual artist, writer and performer currently living and working in London and Stockholm. In her work, she deals with Latin American regionally specific entertainment genres, such as telenovela and reggaeton, as grounds for syncretism and/or social friction. As a reggaeton artist she released The Princess Prada EP.

I know I am late, but you should trust me, it takes time to acknowledge one's emotional landscape, even as a Latin American. I've done a lot of inner work last year, my friends and I have. We actually ask each other "how are you doing," like for real, so, I am imagining you're maybe also my friend this time? Can I blame it on the pandemic? I just want to hug people or spend time under a mildly smelly blanket at some friend/crush's artstudio and watch neorealism black and white Italian films while wondering who's going to make the first move. So, this is my emotional flashback on Frieze Week featuring, unlike all the other stressed reviews out there, the work of some artists working as staff at the fair. Under their pieces you'll find their answer to "¿could you describe your experience working at Frieze London in emojis?"
