Sarah Dahlinger is interested in the complexities of social experiences, cultural idiosyncrasies and collective vices. Her work often pulls from specific venues that offer entertainment, distraction and escape in an effort to contemplate the relationship between moments of extraordinary circumstance and the inevitable return to day-to-day routine.
Through poetical analogies of nature and anthropogenic events, Rodrigo Ímaz‘s practice emphasizes the inadequacies of instrumental reason, while critiquing contemporary society by exploring the violent nature of the relationship between life and cycles of nature. In his work, organic forms arise, threatening human pride and its arrogance and the course of progress, while poetry ennobles language and human creations.”
Ímaz (b. 1982, Mexico City) was in residency at Art Omi (2013). He has been awarded the scholarship for Master Studies from the National Fund for Arts (FONCA) and the Youth Award (INJUVE) – Colección Jumex.

Solo shows in Mexico include “Haciendo Agua” (2012),”Proyecto Invisible” (2012),”Parvada” (2011), “Cefalópodo” (2010), “Ya no llueve” (2009), “Sombra de la sombra” (2007), “Ecos de Juana” (2007), “Especulaciones” (2006), “La incertidumbre también es un motivo” (2006).
