About the artist:
Zac Slams cuts up images and texts to depict gender and sexuality as ways to escape oppression but also as forms of subjugation. Slams is a collage and video artist originally from the UK but currently living and working in Canada. She has recently exhibited at The Feminist Art Conference in Toronto.
About the artwork:
In response to a repressive society, my collages dismantle identity to visualize a new gender symbolism based on images from horror films, pornography, and comic books. The collage medium is useful for this because each collage is a whole made up of a bit parts like identity,
but it is also tactile and physical like the body. Rupturing stereotypical images by infecting them with queer content, I want each collage to contribute toward a universe where our bodies are cut-ups and sticky glue is what binds us together.

I am intrigued by any and all collaborations, especially ones with the end target of an exhibition. Email address: zacslams at gmail . com
