Kate the Cursed Bio: I was born on the eve of y2k (the world did not end). I had a lonely childhood that smelled like cigarettes and dusty CRT TVs. When I was 4, I was told to be a man and had my Barbie dolls smashed. Little did they know, I’d grow up to be a doll myself. I developed insomnia and started watching 80s sci-fi movies on VHS over and over all night. As soon as I turned 18 I started taking female hormones and making art to process the new feels. At 20, I dropped out of film school to pursue an independent glitch art career and was posting my work as Kate the Cursed. The rest is history. <3
