Gepa Hinrichsen

My room is my compass. It shows me where I am and where I want to go. The paintings are my travel companions. They too know a lot.

What I do in one sentence: I make people laugh and feel inspired.

Why I didn’t get a proper job: Jobs that are paying the bills are proper enough for me. And I have been doing a lot of them. I like being paid.

An artwork I dream of and I would get accomplished if space, time and money were abundant: I always wanted to put huge ashtrays with steaming cigarettes next to the railway between Hamburg and Berlin. Some giant beerbottles and shot-glasses here and there, maybe a giant cat… It should feel as if the train you are sitting in belonged to a childish giant. I still love that idea. Can someone please do it?

Artists, I have on my watch list (and why): Its mostly the unknown artists who are on my watchlist. There are so many brilliant and inspiring ideas out there. I love to find and watch them.

I am afraid of getting caught with a smoking gun next to a dead president.

How I want to be buried resp. words I want to be written on my tombstone: “Life is fun” on the tombstone and a realistic sculpture of a shitting cat right in the center of the grave would be nice.
