VITRINE, London

Preview: Thursday 21 March 2019. 6-9pm.

VITRINE is delighted to present the first London solo exhibition of Belgium Brussels-based artist Kato Six.

In her installation work 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 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 — whether it concerns the works’ comprehension, matter or shape.

Kato Six (b. 1986 in Bruges, BE) lives and works in Brussels. She obtained a MA in 3D-multimedia in 2010 and a MA graphic design in 2008 from School of Arts / KASK, Ghent, BE. Her work has been exhibited at; Komplot, Brussels; CHANGE-CHANGE, Budapest; VITRINE, Basel; 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.
