Reporting from the gallery trenches in Berlin, ArtStars*' (artstarstv.com) intrepid host hints that her holidays won't be complete without a new set of teeth.
What's the best gift you've ever received?
My mic. More specifically, the plastic acrylic triangle wrapped around my mic that says "ArtStars*," stolen from the halls of MuchMusic. Also, asking all my friends to bring me a letter for my birthday last year at Double Double Land. They deposited them in a fake mailbox by the front door, and I was drenched in tears and noodle soup in Chinatown by 4 am.
What the best gift you've ever given?
A wish box. It's a mini treasure chest where you keep your dreams and secrets. I invented it.
What's on your list this year?
Electroclash superstar Peaches is releasing a limited-edition set of her teeth plated in three different styles: gold, silver or gunmetal. They hang from the kind of metal chain you'd find on your grandmother's glasses. Perfect to go with my shiny glitter and glitz and available at Art Metropole (788 King West, 416-703-4400, artmetropole.com).
