GREW UP BETWEEN

BUENOS AIRES,

PARIS, CAPE TOWN,

MONTEVIDEO AND

LONDON

A MULTIDISCIPLINARY ARTIST, SHE GIVES PARTICULAR IMPORTANCE TO HER TECHNIQUES, MATERIALS AND MEDIAS, FROM THE PHYSICAL TO THE DIGITAL. WHETHER THROUGH RHYTHMIC EXPERIENCES OR MORE PERCEPTIBLE POINTS OF CONTACT,SHE PROLONGS THE LIFE OF THE OBJECT, MOVING IT TOWARDS AN AWE-INSPIRING INFINITY THAT REVEALS THE IMPORTANCE OF ARTISTIC DISCOURSE IN THE POST-INDUSTRIAL ERA.

.

A CHILD OF HYPER-GLOBALISATION, ANN GRIM PLACES HERSELF WITHIN THE REALM OF SOCIAL SCIENCES, WORKING AMONGST SCIENTISTS, PHILOSOPHERS, HISTORIANS AND ECONOMISTS TO SHOWCASE THE INTUITIVE POWER OF HER ART BY DECIPHERING THE COMPLEXITY OF HUMAN NATURE.
