Winners of the The Smirnoff Winter Pride Art Awards 2014, London’s alternative performance awards, Kimatica are a multidisciplinary studio exploring the intersection of the human body, live performance and technology. Excited by the fusion of primitive physicality and contempoary interactive tech, Kimatica’s performances are often inspired by ceremony, ritual and the overlapping of physical and virtual layers to create deeply rich, augmented realities. Their work has toured internationally, including exhibitions at the Tate, the Barbican Centre, Reina Sofia Museum and at both the Stockholm Fringe Festival and Kinetica Art Fair.
