Writer and musician Mica Lemiski interviews women and non-binary artists about a range of topics (gender! politics! love! literature!) in a podcast best-suited to bitches, witches, and anyone who's ever been called "hysterical."
Episode Sixteen: Peep Shows and Pornos: Alexandra Bischoff's Absurd, Intimate Performance Art
In this absurd and sensual episode, dear friend and performance artist Alexandra Bischoff joins Mica to chat about her former job at The Fantasy Factory (Canada's oldest sex shop franchise) and how it influenced her latest performance art pieces: "Peep Show Pop-Up" and "egg shells, egg shells." Ali also discusses her love of embroidering vintage porno mags, a practice that pays homage to two very traditional forms of female labour: embroidery and sex work.
