To accompany our current solo exhibition of portraits of William S. Burroughs by Kate Simon, SHOWstudio has been releasing a series of interviews with the photographer. In the latest conversation, Simon describes her experiences of visiting Burroughs at The Bunker and talks about the very particular creative circle that gathered there. She recalls Burroughs' obsession with weaponry and how he would recommend various means of self defence to her. Seen here wielding a cane, Burroughs gave Simon various tips on staying safe and later bestowed her with a pepper spray! The interview reveals a number of intimate details about the pairs' working and personal relationship and is not to be missed. Listen in now.
