All the Associates
At the very beginning, back in the womb -or even before- there was a girl obsessed with images, with seeing life unravel in front of a seeing hole. First film, birth. Second film, still unfinished, a patchwork of images she would capture in her mind, with her tiny fingers forming a peeping hole opening to a world of bizarre creatures calling themselves adults.
Photographer, performer, thespian fiend, mistress of the dark & the magical.

Maskmaker, I used to and still on occasions perform, I like to express myself through different mediums but it often comes down to creating images or visions to share with others.
I’m a queer disabled self-portrait artist. My photographic depictions are created within the same 2 by
1.5 metre space; my bed. This year marks my fifth year of spending almost every day confined here.
Daisy (she/they) is a queer artist who makes miniature sculptures that reject the heteronormative dollhouses of our childhood and explore...
Eli’s paintings aim to open a portal to the ambiguous realm between fact and fantasy. Making use of found objects, their play-oriented practise references the childhood belief in animism: the hidden slumbering spirit within all things. They create shrine-like installations which borrow from fairytales, mythology, folklore, psychoanalysis, and the visual language of the sacred – repurposed for the contemporary world.
House of Frisson is part of my sustainable practice to reuse and repurpose existing objects rather than buying new raw materials. By painting, decorating, and applying collage onto ceramic plates, vases, and picture frames, I’m prolonging the life of unwanted or unappealing objects. They become one-of-a-kind art pieces that people could proudly display in their homes.
Hi! I’m Aarandeep. I’m a queer, non-binary, Sikh, Punjabi designer and astrologer living in London. I use design as a way for empowerment, darkness and exploring identities. As a child born out of the diaspora, I love all my contradictions, edges and dreams.
In a world where South Asian-ness becomes vast and wide, I believe as queer South Asian people, we are rewriting and re-defining what our diasporic identities are. There is so much power in that and I want everyone to recognise how incredibly unique and amazing that is. We won’t be silenced or erased, we’ll only work towards being fierce, sensitively aware, and revolutionary. <3 This has been the basis for a lot of my work.
