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 abroad and 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 creates and produces a highly chaotic, raunchy TV project and live stage show called Pubic Access. She-he loves dick and lives in Brooklyn, NY with a snake named Mascara.

Nathlie Provosty (b. 1981, Cincinnati, Ohio) is a visual artist based in New York, whose work is engaged with materiality and perception. The artist uses subtle, highly tactile qualities of oil paint that oscillate visually and conceptually due to the painting's multi-referential imagery, physical interaction with light and the environment, and continuous spatial shifts. Her first one-person exhibition in New York opened in 2012 at 1:1, an experimental artist-run gallery in the East Village. She has since exhibited nationally and internationally, including solo presentations at the Risorgimento Museum in Turin, Italy (2018-19), A Palazzo Gallery in Italy, and Nina Johnson Gallery in Miami, among others. Group exhibitions include the Santa Barbara Museum of Art, CA (2020), the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art (2019), Kunsthall Stavanger, Norway (2018), Colby Museum of Art, ME (2017), and the Washington University Museum, DC (2017). In May 2022 Hassla published an artist book by Provosty titled [a partial list of falling], which coordinated with a solo exhibition at Nathalie Karg Gallery in NY (2022), her fourth exhibition at the gallery.
