Elim Case (°1981, San Diego, United States) is a non-binary artist who works in a variety of media. By emphasizing aesthetics, Case creates work in which a fascination with the clarity of content and an uncompromising attitude towards conceptual and minimal art can be found. The work is aloof and systematic, and a cool and neutral imagery is used.

Their works are based on formal associations which open a unique poetic vein. Multilayered images arise, in which the fragility and instability of our seemingly certain reality is questioned. By choosing mainly formal solutions, they seduce the viewer into a world of ongoing equilibrium and the interval that articulates the stream of daily events. Moments are depicted that only exist to punctuate the human drama in order to clarify our existence and to find poetic meaning in everyday life.

At times, disconcerting beauty emerges. The inherent visual seductiveness, along with the conciseness of the exhibitions, further complicates the reception of their manifold layers of meaning.
