The artist sees many of these cultural norms established in the formative stories of childhood. In contrast to these indoctrinations, Minoliti uses her work to picture alternate realities free of biases by utilizing diverse, colorful, and playful hybrid forms. Her characters are non-binary, challenging the usual categories of male and female, and also blurring boundaries between human, animal, and machine. Her work frequently unsettles anthropocentric views of the world and allows hierarchies between humans and non-humans to dissolve. Working in both two and three dimensions, and between the vocabularies of painting, sculpture, architecture, and design, the artist also collapses traditional categories in art history to harness a more capacious and fluid language. This activation of other beings, entities, and otherwise inanimate objects generates a multitude of possibilities — joyful, colorful, and inviting of a more inclusive world.
