In February Southwark Playhouse plays host to a meeting of music and film as the London Sinfonietta collaborates with students from Central Saint Martins. In our latest round of quickfire questions, film-maker Tatiana Delauney shares her highs, her lows and this time, her best art-related joke. See her film and five others accompanied live by London Sinfonietta soloists on Tuesday 9 February.
What do you regard as your greatest artistic achievement?
Curating and organizing an exhibition and performance with no budget in two months (Making a Home at Geddes Gallery). Otherwise, getting out of bed and trying to do work is my daily achievement!
What is your greatest fear?
Not getting out of bed and trying to do work.
What’s currently on your coffee table at home?
Erm, dirty dishes and the framed picture A Mood of Highly Coloured Naturalism by Karen Knorr. But mostly dirty dishes.
What was the first recording you ever bought?
Probably something deeply uncool like the French version of Britney Spears.
Describe your film-making style in three words.
Self-deprecating, analytical, spontaneous.
If you could have any profession, what would it be?
A writer or performer or director, maybe, or none.
Who has been the biggest influence in your life so far?
Is this when you’re expected to say mum?
Tell us your best art-related joke:
Modern Art: “I could do that”.
“Yeah, but you didn’t”.
