Kate Levant “Use your indicator” at Clima Gallery, Milan
Levant’s presentation of work is made of different medias, mostly installations, sculptures and two dimensional works created by the overlaying of material and concepts.
The artist’s research cycles through the relative functions of body and mind, considering how body:acting and mind:thinking operate concurrently, however often moving along different trajectories.
Bibs becomes aprons and jacket, all wearable items which purposely can be experienced, worn, or merely touched.
One large multilayered installation stands as a totemic image generating meditative reflection upon the con- ditions of primal human urges, and origins.
Another work creates an environment which instigates the psychic task of physically experiencing signs’ split from the material registrations which their concrete forms present. Slipping in alternate directions within the confines of a green room, cunning transformations ricochet throughout.
In still other works, a sense of contemporaneity is very present, as if the works’ motives are shot immediate input from the body, in turn becoming powerful and intense assemblages driven by the instinctual directives felt by the artist herself.
