Kato Six (b. 1986 in Bruges, BE) lives and works in Brussels. She obtained a MA in 3D-multimeda in 2010 and a MA graphic design in 2008
from School of Arts / KASK, Ghent, BE. She was a participant at the Skowhegan School of Painting & Sculpture, Skowhegan ME, USA in 2017.
Her work has been exhibited in CHANGE-CHANGE Budapest; c-o-m-p-o-s-i-t-e Brussels; KIOSK Ghent, BE and P/////AKT, Amsterdam. She
was an artist in residency at Wiels in Brussels and RU in New York. In her installation works Six makes minimal but incisive spatial interventions
that act as sculptural marginalia - annotations that are often literally placed in the margins of the space they occupy. With elements, forms, and
materials that recall former interior designs as a starting point, Six employs familiar material culture at times reactivitating haunting of collective
embodied memory. By abstracting mental, affective and physical resources from their original function, setting or occurence, Six aims at
reconfiguring our experience of the ways we make ourselfs at home in the world. Formally, she does this in a rather radical way, for abstraction
is pushed to the limits of its own artificiality - wether it concerns the works' comprehension, matter or shape.
