Duo exhibition - Sári Ember & Kato Six in DMW Art space

Date: 25 January - 20 February 2019

Opening: 24 January, 7 PM

ES slide copy

The works of Sári Ember and Kato Six both deal with the objects and materials from our surrounding, but form a different perspective. The show they are proposing is an installation that plays with the experience of being in the gallery space as a public space and at the same time being confronted with objects that quote from the experience of the private sphere. The feeling of nostalgia and remembrance is present in their works, however in a different time scale: Kato's research is based on one's childhood memories, whereas Sári is focusing on a more historical scale of heritage.

 

About the artists:

Sári Ember (*1985, São Paulo) graduated with a degree in photography from the Moholy-Nagy University of Arts and Design in Budapest.

Her work focuses on the notion of identity, the personal past, the past of communities and the situation of the individual in these communities.

Her practice usually embraces a variety of media and her recent projects have included video, collage, painting, and stone and ceramic objects and she often questions the nature of representation. Recently, her interest has been drawn toward more abstract images and the creation of hybrid images through the examination and consequent deconstruction of such classic genres as portraiture.

Her work has been exhibited in São Paulo, Paris, Łódź, Brno, Milano and Budapest and she received the prestigious Campari Award for young artists in Torino in 2017.

Kato Six (b. 1986 in Bruges, BE) lives and works in Brussels. She obtained a MA in 3D-multimeda in 2010 and a MA graphic design in 2008 from School of Arts / KASK, Ghent, BE. She was a participant at the Skowhegan School of Painting & Sculpture, Skowhegan ME, USA in 2017.

Her work has been exhibited in CHANGE-CHANGE Budapest; c-o-m-p-o-s-i-t-e Brussels; KIOSK Ghent, BE and P/////AKT, Amsterdam. She was an artist in residency at Wiels in Brussels and RU in New York. In her installation works Six makes minimal but incisive spatial interventions that act as sculptural marginalia - annotations that are often literally placed in the margins of the space they occupy. With elements, forms, and materials that recall former interior designs as a starting point, Six employs familiar material culture at times reactivating haunting of collective embodied memory. By abstracting mental, affective and physical resources from their original function, setting or occurrence, Six aims at  reconfiguring our experience of the ways we make ourselves at home in the world. Formally, she does this in a rather radical way, for abstraction is pushed to the limits of its own artificiality - wether it concerns the works' comprehension, matter or shape.
