Lucia Love

Lucia Love (b. 1988 in New York NY, lives and works in Brooklyn) attended the School of Visual Arts on a grant from The Foundation for Contemporary Art where they studied painting and animation. Using the logic of keyframing and character design, Love works to create narrative depictions that fuse history and fantasy in order to explore the complex moralities of power. Their recent body of work centers around collective versus individual action, and will be on view in a solo presentation titled Angel Takes The Wheel Feb. 4th 2022 at JDJ Tribeca.

Sad Omicron Show/Nate Heiges alone

Becuase of the Omicron breakout in New York City in late December/early January, it wasn’t safe for me to have my scheduled guest, poet Ginny Wiehardt, in the station. As an alternative I put together a show full of angsty love songs, anxious instrumentals, and a special appearance from Grover of Sesame Street. This show is a rejection of the world's refusal to satisfy the deepest needs of our hearts--and a total blast.

Tragically, due to the punk rock/amateur nature of the setup and Candystore’s extremely scintillating/distracting pre-show banter somebody (Nate) did not record this show. An encouragement to listen to the live show! If we are lucky, Candystore will grace us again in 2022. Listen to Candystore’s playlist on Spotify here!

Candystore was a 2018-2019 artist-in-residence with Shandaken: Governor’s Island and a 2018-2019 fellow in the Queer | Art | Mentorship program. In 2019, she-he was one of four recipients of the Shannon Michael Cane Award from Printed Matter, which allowed shimher the opportunity to produce and self publish her debut, *SOLD OUT* book of poetry, Hi Angels: Poems by Candystore, which then begat the 2020 extended version, Hi Angels: DELUXE—also sold out, sorry.

Candystore’s writing and art have been published in PAPER Magazine, Phile Magazine, Riot of Perfume, Precog Mag, RFD, and others. She-he has performed around New York City, most notably at MoMA PS1 (though it was only in the book store) and Dixon Place (but in that weird area between the bar and the bathroom). Candystore also performs every time she-he uses a public, "binary-themed" restroom. In shimher spare time, Candystore hosts a sexy, community-focused TV show called Pubic Access. She-he loves dick and lives in Brooklyn, NY with a snake named Mascara.
