The desire to merge human and animal into one creature has fascinated artists for 40,000 years. Coinciding with the 200th anniversary year of the publication of Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein, which gave rise to the portrayal of the mad scientist and outcast hybrid creature, My Monster celebrates the artistic representation of hybridity from mythology to movies, taxidermy to biotechnology.
