How would Lava La Rue introduce herself to someone who isn’t familiar with her project yet?
I would say: My name is Lava La Rue and I am a musician and visual artist from West-London.
You’ve started a collective, where you bring many creatives together. Is there a difference between working on something for your solo project and for the collective?
That’s a very good question. With my solo work, it’s very thought through and I am always planning five years ahead, so the whole has a narrative and is quite conceptual. With the stuff I do with the collective, it’s exactly how we’re feeling in the moment. It’s very rarely thought through and more embodying the energy of having loads of different people from your community in a room together. We just make what we want to make and are more impulsive or reactive.
