BMF Vendor Spotlight: Top Picks from Underwater Ventriloquist

Black Market Flea vendor spotlight for Underwater Ventriloquist's poetry and comics


Black Market Flea is back this month with Pride Riot and we’re here to tell you about some of these awesome vendors we have including Underwater Ventriloquist:


Underwater Ventriloquist is an art and poetry project by Celene Chen. In her work, she explores her experiences as a second-generation Hong Konger and lesbian navigating love and burdens. Her drawings are done predominantly in black ink, and her new zine, A Treatise on the Body as Curated by My Fingers, describes in individual triplets a queer relationship with bodies. Her poetry chapbook, Underwater Ventriloquist, connects her personal narrative with evolving responses on identity and her Love Poetry zine brings interpersonal tenderness to the forefront. By cataloging and sharing her story, she hopes to start conversations on identity and intergenerational impacts as a Chinese-American lesbian.


1. Kill All Genders Magnets

I want that one on my fridge. OR actually, someone was just telling me about how magnets work well as removable bumper stickers for your car.

2. Lucky Fish glossy stickers

What a dope design! Put it on the objects in your life that magnets won’t adhere to. OR just wish someone a good day and stick it on their clothing!

3. Underwater Ventriloquist: Poetry Zine

The art from this looks super amazing and the poetry I’d venture to say is equally amazing. Art and wordsmiths enrich your life if you let them in, so it seems like the proper time to pick one of these up and improve yourself.


Black Market Flea: Pride Riot is on Sunday June 9th at the Cambridge Community Center. Don’t miss it!
