My Name is Gigax/Cecily Walti(b. 1994, CH) I live and work in Zurich.
I got my BFA from Zurich University of Arts in 2019
I am a feminist artist* and I think resistance is an aesthetic practice. I create Rebelling Creatures. They tackle gendernorms, they are wild, they are beasts that live in constant resistance. They have long sharp claws and thick fur and bared sharp teeth. They are my “kindred spirits“, my individual expression of how I emotionally locate myself in this world to myself and to others. I either draw my monster with oil sticks in large scale fast and rough on Cardboard which i find on the street. Or i draw them with ink feathers on a miniature scale really slow and detailed on paper or scratch them in clay.
"Every woman has a well-stocked arsenal of anger potentially useful against those opressions, personal and institutional, which brought that anger into being. Focused with precision it can become a powerful source of energy serving progress and change."
