WHAT'S YOUR NAME?
Aliyah Winter aka Oil Grace.
WHAT ARE YOUR PRONOUNS?
WHAT DO YOU DO AND WHY DO YOU DO IT?

DO YOU MIND TELLING US YOUR AGE?
TALK TO US ABOUT THE PRINTS YOU DESIGNED FOR JIMMY D THIS SEASON, WHERE DID THEY COME FROM AND WHAT DO THEY MEAN?
The RAGE print is made from stills of a video I made, that draws from an iconic essay by Susan Stryker 'My Words to Victor Frankenstein'. The glitched images of me wearing a wig, fishnets, dress, pantihose and makeup were used to make the final print. The other print I designed reads as gameplay from a text adventure game, it references the 'sissy hypno' genre of porn. In simple terms it's all about a paradox; of both the narrow fetishisation and expansive power of femininity.
WHAT DO YOU LIKE ABOUT CLOTHES?
Not to be that bitch, but I feel like clothing has the potential to totally transform your experience of yourself, and the way you move through the world. And because I'm a Libra Rising :)
WE HEAR THAT YOU’RE A DJ. WHAT’S A SONG THAT YOU’RE EXCITED TO BUST OUT?

WHAT'S YOUR WORST HABIT?
Being a bitch.
