We are surrounded by transient beings. They are gatekeepers to other dimensions, shapeshifting
in multiple formations. Their bodies are resonant vessels allured by the Cosmos oscillatory vibrations. They are travellers, messengers. In a rhythmic symbiosis with their surroundings, their bodies operate as transmitters and receivers. From their glowing metamorphic skin, they emit patterns of light. They are transducers of energy.
The Kimonos’ patterns propose a new visual lexicon that works as a cosmogram with a rhythmic appeal to ascension. By using spray gun paint imprinted through stencils of discarded material found in foundries, garbage and taken from gardens, the artist builds visual scores structured by color frequencies that treat the body as a speaker, as a vessel for reverberation. The 3D-schematics of its pantone suggests the kinetics of multidimensional space, a pact with journeying where bodies become not one but a simulation, a potential orchestra of vibrations. They also re-affirm our need to imagine distinct cosmologies and speculate about original myths, and other modalities of being. -Margarida Mendes
