FlamingFemme is a radical approach to the interview genre
Self-published by Billington in 2016, FlamingFemme flaunts a dynamic aesthetic of post-punk-feminist meets kitsch, and is the product of a visual collaboration with graphic designer Alexander Beraza.
The interviewees featured are Michelle Yue, Darcey Steinke, PANMELYS, Iona Kewney, and Ene-Liis Semper. Topics include fashion, literature, painting, dance and performance art.
Featuring a selection of iconic women artists, each conversation featured in this zine offers exclusive insights into the role of gender in the arts--from the initial conception of projects to the navigation of institutional opportunities. Many of the artists featured felt that their sex in no way limited their opportunities, but was rather a source of power and inspiration.
