Ana Morgade, November 8, 1979, Madrid.Ana Morgade feels comfortable in the art environment, that’s why I quote her at the Swinton Gallery and she assures me that she is like at home, although sometimes he has incendiary instincts. And it is that he has just started a project called Suicide auctions. “We make a downward auction, which is depreciating, because the fire is eating the workalways with the artist’s permission” she explains. Incendiary, literally and metaphorically, because she has never been silent: “As a child she talked a lot and my parents told me to become a lawyerthat with my glibness I would win the cases, and look where I’ve ended up.” From lawyer to actress, presenter and comedian no less, a trip that I would have never imagined: “If my 14-year-old self could sneak through a little hole and take a look, I’d freak out, I had no idea I was going to do so well in this life.”
And it is that this Future It’s a mystery, that’s precisely the name of the work that premieres at the Galileo theater, now Sala Quique San Francisco, until December 3a generational reflection on what success in life is supposed to be.” I would call theater my love of all life, because it is the first thing I have done since I was very little. From the age of 17 I climbed on the boardsI fell deeply in love with the feeling and I never got off,” he says.
There are many jokes that I said 15 years ago that I don’t feel like doing today, and that’s fine
What he has left, and by choice, is television, because she was a mother: “TV has something that is a bit misleading… you have the feeling that when people leave, they leave forever”. She herself has laughed when she has read some news, whose headline is “what happened to Ana Morgade”that’s why he tells me: “When you work on television you think there is no other way to work and when you go out you realize that the radio has other tempos, it’s calmer”. Although his new life, calm, has nothing . “Reconciliation does not existyou have to do the same as you did before, be just as functional, but with twice the work,” she says. A few years ago she appeared at the Seminci in Valladolid dressed in a suit bag claiming non-regulatory bodies: “We have established a society in which postpartum women are hidden… and they reappear when they had the body they used to, as if nothing had happened, as if being a mother was a trauma. You have to teach those moments because they are also part of life.”
You don’t have to stop arguing, what you have to stop is yelling at each other
Vindictive and convinced feminist assures me that “be a feminist” it’s something that helped me “to be a better person”. Something that has made her evolve in her life and in her humor: “If I kept making the same jokes from 10 years ago, what a scam. There are many jokes that I told 15 years ago that I don’t feel like doing todayand that’s fine, it means that your sensitivity has changed and that you’ve grown.” Older and wiser, but just as restless and emphatic, she assures: “You have to say what you think, but from an affectionate place. You don’t have to stop arguing, what you have to stop is yelling at each other.” And he says this softly, because truths do not need a loudspeaker.
