Romance and modern dating are recurrent themes for you – what would your dream date look like?
I’ve just been on a date recently and it was one of the best dates I’ve ever been on. We drove all the way to Grimsby and broke into an abandoned theme park.
Your artwork often re-appropriates old forgotten pornography images, why is it?
I’m interested in twisting this idea of pornography. I’m not against pornography in any way shape or form. But how modern-day women are supposed to be like – the big boobs…whatever – is just a reflection on how women are represented in porn. I take found images in porn from old ‘70s porno movies – there are differences definitely with appearance but back than women had little to no voice at all. Because I have such a big voice I think it’s quite interesting – I suppose what I’m trying to do is give them a voice they didn’t have in a way. I know a lot of women these days who are so scared of telling people how they feel especially when it comes to relationships. I’m trying to break those taboos.
Your slogans are very funny too – from the outside world the fashion world is perceived as a serious place, full of serious people…
It’s so the opposite. When I did my first ever photoshoot – it was shot by Boo George – and I was absolutely shitting myself. I didn’t eat for like two days before and even then I was like this is ridiculous. But the designers, photographers and stylists I’ve met on shoots are ten times funnier, more approachable and kinder than anyone on my course at university.
