GRIMA - mit Katze

Grima (Grima)
photo restitchings, beginning in 1986

In this cycle, I showed mutations as the point at which human and animal merge. To create these hybrid beings, I cut out parts of my own self-portraits and juxtaposed them with fragments of photos of my children and of animals. “Grima” is the ancient Nordic word for mask and finds its echo in many of today’s words, such as “grimace” and “grin.”
