Rock and Hard Places
/ Rock en Lugares Complicados

“The future was re-written for two book loving expats with the suggestion of a friend.

Unpacking their tiny libraries revealed a text overlap with shared marriage to Mueller and Kilburn Rock city was born”

 

Jo and Jen were two Australians living in London in the early 2000s & met when they were looking to share a house together, a match made by a friend. Jo knew that she and Jen were kindred spirits when they unpacked their heavily curated expat libraries & they both had the obscure book ‘Rock and Hard Places’ by Andrew Mueller. Self-described ‘sister wives’ of the author, they continue regular visits as close friends even though they live on opposite sides of the world.

Kilburn Rock City was the nickname given to the place that they lived, on Kilburn Rd, London.

Jennifer now runs Convivio co-working space which is where this exhibition was held.

Her good friend Jo is visiting Oaxaca for the Trueque Festival.

 

Rock en Lugares Complicados

Jo y Jen eran dos australianas que vivían en Londres a principios de los 2000. Se conocieron gracias a un amigo,  cuando ambas estaban en busca de una casa para compartir. Jo supo que ella y Jen eran almas parecidas cuando desempacando sus libros selectos cuidadosamente, notaron que ambas tenían el libro obscuro de Andrew Mueller ‘Rock and Hard Places’. Se describen a sí mismas como ‘hermanas-esposas’ del autor y actualmente continúan visitándose la una a la otra, a pesar de vivir al otro lado del mundo.
Killburn Rock City era el apodo del lugar donde vivían en Kilburn Rd. En Londres.
Jennifer es actualmente la encargada de Convivio en Oaxaca México y Jo está de visita en Oaxaca para el festival Trueque.
