COL SPORCAR SI TROVA
Yuki Kimura’s work exists both as an elegant, static, physical form with a calmly assertive presence in space, and as an immaterial, wandering, and vibrating force reflective of all that exists around and throughout it – in the negative, so to speak. It initiates processes of transformation and is transformative itself. The passive, mute, and durable world of objects and physical matter that one encounters in Kimura’s work becomes a place of dynamic processes and shapeshifting, where the stable appearance and order of things are profoundly transformed. Kimura’s work operates beyond language, occupying an entirely visual sphere, but communicates at a highly visceral and embodied level of perception.
The publication COL SPORCAR SI TROVA is published on the occasion of Yuki Kimura’s eponymous solo exhibition at the Kunstverein für die Rheinlande und Westfalen, Düsseldorf (2022) and translates its illusionistic play with projection, mirroring, and spatial inversion into book form.
