A short animation set to Klaus Nomi’s rendition of You Don’t Own Me: queer liberation or neoliberal liberty?

Kristin Li was born in Chengdu, China, and currently lives and works in Montreal. As an emerging multimedia artist, Kristin creates installations, animations, documentaries, and experimental narratives that explore contemporary formations of power. These projects recontextualize familiar stories, practices, and institutions to reveal the ways that they constrain us in spite of our intentions, and the hidden sites of possibility that we can nonetheless exploit. Kristin’s work has been shown across North America, South America, and Europe, with recent screenings at the International Short Film Festival Oberhausen (Germany), Vidéoformes (France), and MIX NYC (US).
