Kimberly Clark plays with her own emotions...
In a hyper way the artist's collective uses clichés surrounding them: sex, party, violence, art, mythology, poetry...
Kimberly Clark mixes all these ingredients to installations, in which they express their love-hate relationship with the world they live in.
It's 'Art with pleasure' created with passion.
Kimberly Clark makes sculptures and installations refering to escapades they stage on the street.
During those actions they create sceneries moving between clumsiness and seriousness, in a complex world in which beautyideals and behaviourcodes define acceptation.
For example the work 'crusade Rotterdam', is based on two women climbing to the top of a heap of construction waste lying in the street. One of the women is carrying a piece of beam, the other one ironcurtain rails. The composition of the women is that of a crucifix. The piece refers to history as it was inspired by the painting of Delacroix 'Freedom guiding the people', but at the same time it refers to 'styling of uselessness'.
With feeling for self ridicule KC flirts with an image language wich is raugh but most important, humoristic. In a way you could say the installations are autobiographical. At least the artists can identify with the subjects they chose. That explains why the collective often takes ‘the woman' as their point of departure. The contradiction between the beauty of women and the rawness of her situation creates vulnerability but at the same time female heroine and power.
