Time Out says

Since the 1980’s, King’s sculptures and stop-motion animated videos have deepened the uncanny valley into a veritable chasm of weirdness filled with figures resembling hybrids of Hans Bellmer’s disarticulated Poupées, Morton Bartlett’s child mannequins and automotive crash-test dummies. Odder still is the fact that King models the faces of her subjects on her own features. Whether this is just a matter of convenience or a deeply disturbing exercise in self portraiture is hard to say. All the same, her work is powerful in its eeriness, as evidenced by the selection of works spanning her career.
