Jimena Kato – An Awkward Understanding of the Bodily Mechanics
If dancing is about walking, and walking is about swinging the body weight, sculpture makes part of these games of balance.
Jimena Kato states that these physical notions are the main directional traits of her work:
I use matter and its weight as a principal foundation for my pieces. Accept their constitution, their movement, their own dynamics, to work with them instead of trying to controle them.
The making of a sculpture becomes also a “laisser faire” game.
This Friday 22 March from 7 – 9 pm her solo exhibition opens at
Rodrigues Gallery, Wodna 13/4 at Poznan, Poland
The exhibition runs until 24 April and is open Wed-Fri 12-7pm and Sat 12- 5pm
