DISCUSSION: IUMI KATAOKA (ARGENTINE), VIOLETA SOLIS HORCASITAS (MEXIQUE)
The main focus of Violeta Solis Horcasitas is the research and reflection on collaborative processes in art. She is currently working on a new exhibition that connects poetic texts of Canadian First Nations authors with the work of local artists who work on the same subject. The selection of works will be simultaneously presented at Fonderie Darling and in other points between Montreal and Mexico.
Montreal, Olympic Games, 1976. Nadia Comăneci performs her uneven bars routine. The scoreboard can’t reproduce the digit she qualifies: the figure has exceeded the regular parameters of nomination, and machine results obsolete for the statement that is beyond the norm… what happened? Iumi Kataoka’s current work at the Darling Foundry stems from this historical anecdote where a specific point in time in time exceeds its possible representations.
