Redell & Jimenez
Performance Stills

Kaitlynn Redell and Sara Jimenez are multi-disciplinary artists who have been engaged in intense collaboration since attending Site + Sight, a visual research project in Beijing, China and The Gobi Desert. Since forming Redell & Jimenez, they have presented their work at Hunter College's Focus and Motivation, and have been published in NYU's interdisciplinary journal Anamesa and the Brooklyn Rail. In 2013, they were artists-in-residence at the Wassaic Project in Wassaic, NY. They have exhibited throughout NYC including at NYCAMs, Rush Arts Gallery, Fowler Arts Gallery, A.I.R. Gallery and were included in El Museo del Barrio's 2013 Bienal Here is Where We Jump. Last fall they were included in their first international exhibition, The Name, The Nose, curated by Raul Zamudio, at Museo Laboratorio — Ex Manifattura Tabacchi in Città Sant'Angelo (PE) Italy. Most recently, Redell & Jimenez performed and exhibited work at the Luminaria Festival in San Antonio, TX and had work included in Electric Walls at OTGF in Los Angeles, CA.

Redell & Jimenez's collaborative process stems from their mutual interest in the concept of inbetweeness, a space of fluidity and negotiation, where predetermined categories of the body, gender, history and psychology are constantly formed and re-formed. Through a continual dialogue around ancestry, race and cultural histories, Redell & Jimenez have developed a multi-media project of performance, installation, and video. They explore movements of tension, exhaustion and stillness in sites that have a history of liminality. Their site-specific explorations are activated and choreographed via conjoined, amorphous, fabric body suits that disguise and abstract their bodies as they negotiate their interdependency.
