Vague Force is Femme Salée’s sixth zine issue. As the editor, Sam Grabowska, PhD explains “all the works in this issue center around the body simultaneously constrained and emerging.”
I’m Sorry is Femme Salée’s fifth zine issue. In this special edition, artists explore what apologies really mean & what they really want from apologies. As Kaiah explains, “This zine is a placeholder for conveying grief, trauma, or loss through art.”
Cosmic Futures is Femme Salée’s fourth zine issue. It is about the increasing encroachment of the “Metaverse” into our lived realities and everyday lives. As we move from physical to encompassing digital spaces, real-world issues like representation, racism, gendered, and sexual biases could be solved through equitable digital access or be furthered entrenched across the digital and physical divide.
Eccentric Devotions is Femme Salée’s third zine issue. It is about the ways in which religion, faith, spirituality, or a lack or deconstructed form thereof, inform creative practice.
Perverse Bodies is a meditation on what it means to have a “perverse body” as someone who is lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, or non-binary. It delves into the “perverse” or contrary in terms of sexuality but also in terms of age, class position, creative output, (dis)ability, disease, gender identity, media choices, mortality, mourning, power, racial identity, religion, reproductive organs, and self-care for personal health.
Bad Health is Femme Salée’s inaugural zine edition. Inspired by the Founder & Director’s body & mind experiences living with cystic fibrosis, the Bad Health issue features artworks, poems, & creative writings by artists & writers living with chronic illness(es). Contributors present works that demonstrate & reveal their private, daily lives as people living with “bad” health.
