Qimmy Shimmy’s sculptures attract and repel at the same time

You will be upset, some will remain deeply disgusted, but no one will be able to stop looking at them, I’m talking about the mini sculptures of Qimmy Shimmy.

We’ve already talked HERE about Qixuan Lim, better known as Qimmy Shimmy, and her creepy mini sculptures, and we’re back to doing so because, as always with her, we’ve been fascinated by her new creations, even though we still don’t know if they’re good or bad.

The fact that man has always been attracted in a strange and perverse way by what repels him, is not new. The horrid has always been an artistic category, even before it was consecrated as such between the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. Today it seems that this trend has no limits and the small sculptures made of synthetic paste by Qimmy Shimmy are part of it to all intents and purposes. 

In his latest creations, he continues to shape small organs and body parts, but they are always matched to the world of food. Cakes filled with hearts, cans of tuna filled with brains and limbs, macarons made with the faces of children. 

You would not like to do it, but you will not be able to stop looking at them.
