Singapore Artist Talks About Her Desire to Challenge Viewers With Her ‘Creepy Cute’ Sculptures

Quimmy Shimmy (Lim Qi Xuan), a surrealist pop artist from Singapore who incorporates the faces of babies into clay macarons among other discomfiting projects, spoke with 60 Second Docs about her love for the unusual.
