Lucia Ribisi on Tour: Episode 2
Teenage Artist Lucia zeigt in ihrer Video Kolumne Eindrücke ihrer Europa Tour, die sie im Sommer 2015 erlebt hat
Lucia Ribisi wohnt in Los Angeles und ist 18 Jahre alt. Im Sommer 2015 hat sie eine Reise durch Europa gemacht, nachdem sie für ein Projekt für Saint Laurent nach Paris eingeflogen wurde. Einmal im Monat teilt sie per Video und Bild ihre Erlebnisse. Tägliche Updates liefert sie via Instagram.
This past summer I traveled to Paris with the intention of staying for one weekend during men’s fashion week. It was a trip for work. Three days turned into two weeks turned into one month. During this month I fell in love with the escape of solo traveling. I returned to Los Angeles for my eighteenth birthday and then went back to Europe to watch the seasons change from summer till fall.
I didn’t know how long I’d stay, where I’d go or how I’d do it, but I bought myself a one-way ticket to Berlin anyway. I ended up acting in a short film in Poland, meeting my soul sister in Berlin, following Girlpool on tour through Hamburg, spending a second fashion week in Paris, working on a vineyard in Tuscany, seeing the Venice Biennial and finding peace, pleasure and the perfect pastries in Vienna.
Being an eighteen year old girl traveling alone is terrifying. I had to be brave. I spent much of my time walking, finding stillness stumbling upon the sacred spaces splattered around the streets of all the cities I visited.
Although the cultures of these places were radically different from each other, I created structure by following routines, finding the similarities in each place, relating them to each other and working through the tunnels of my thoughts on my own.
