[Salt shakers in Leandra’s kitchen are by artist David Shrigley and available to buy at the New Museum Store: “We got them as a gift from close friends of ours for our wedding. They were definitely a very ironic gift because my husband has never smoked a cigarette, a joint, anything in his life, he didn’t try his first drink until he was twenty-one, he is so by-the-books it’s painful.”]
How big was your wedding?
Leandra: “It was 400 people – so quite big - bigger than I wanted it to be.”
“My wedding was just a surreal experience – it didn’t feel like it was me. It felt like I was watching what was happening from somewhere remote, and thinking, ‘what is she doing.’”
Do you want to have kids?
“Yeah – not yet though.”
