Annie Jim (@deadgrips):

Annie Jim's works deals with the unconscious, the monstrous and what lurks beneath the surface. the fantasies, the taboos, the abject, the melding of the organic & the erotic; as well as the staleness & violence in modern culture: historical amnesia, rejection of nature, commodification of the gendered and racialized body and the embrace of technological fascism under late capitalism.
