Technically, a “Ligger” is that little white and red floater-ball you attach to the end of a fishing line. But it’s also a Scottish slang word for a hipster, a hanger-on, a wannabe, a parasite-to-the-in-crowd. Somebody who goes to art openings to drink free wine, but never buys a painting. Somebody who sees art as not something you make, but something you milk. Somebody who is always seen, but never remembered. Somebody who desperately wants to be invited to all the right parties, but never quite manages it, somehow.
