About the Pickled Body issue 1.1 The Red Shoes
Our call for submissions for the first issue was inspired by The Red Shoes – all of them. The Hans Christian Andersen fairytale, the wondrous Powell and Pressburger Film and the Kate Bush album released in November 1993. The sixteen pieces selected for Issue 1.1, complemented by the work of our featured artist Ria Czerniak, are by turns visceral and surreal, vibrant and raw.
