di_stance | a performance installation by Cat Jimenez & Maiko Sakurai Karner

dance, performance, art, dancer, woman, geometric, sculpture, hair, minimalistic

Two artists shaped by their East Asian and Middle European backgrounds

as well as the contrariety of both worlds. This is the starting point

of this collaboration between Cat Jimenez + Maiko Sakurai Karner.

Opposing points of view, due to their multicultural heritage,

as well as the opportunity to always shine a light from different

perspectives have been recurring issues for Maiko and Cat.

This developed into their everyday behaviour and shaped their lives as artists.


'di_stance' is the attempt to translate this personal awareness,

through their shared familiar and trusted language of design and the clarity of minimalism,

to create a structure based on approach, appreciation and respect.

"Aus dem Kontrast zwischen den beiden Temperamenten, zwischen den bewegten Körpern und den nur scheinbar starren Objekten, zwischen puristischem Minimalismus und tänzerischer Energie, zwischen Asien und Europa ist eine Einheit entstanden, die durch Präzision und Schönheit betört."
