In conversation with Alva Skog

An interview taken from our June Issue. In this special issue, we wanted to give light to artists, especially illustrators and painters, to know how to quarantine time affected their lives and their process. We wanted to showcase a different story, different arts to give a voice and platform for these creators.

KALTBLUT: It’s been almost 2 months since self-isolation has been enforced worldwide, how are you feeling?
Alva: I’m feeling okay. I live in London but I went back to my family in Sweden before the lockdown and have been here since. I’m happy to be close to my mom, dad, sis, cat and dog.

KALTBLUT: What have you been doing to pass your time in quarantine?
Alva: I have been watching a lot of TV-series like Devs, Hidden and the Loop, and I have been reading a lot of books like Picnic on Paradise by Joanna Russ and The Dispossessed by Ursula K. Le Guin.

KALTBLUT: How has the situation affected your work?
Alva: I’ve been making a lot of personal work in response to the situation and this has kept me motivated and also has become a way for me to channel what I’m feeling.
