Bio/Statement:

Héctor Jiménez Castillo’s practice is influenced by intuition, chance and the use of his own biography. His work frequently depicts human vulnerability and examines identity and intimacy. Castillo investigates the production of images that are inspired by our unconscious and explores them in different media including choreography, text, drawing, and sculpture. His work process can be described as methodically organizing an unveiling of his own reality and that of others while playing with notions of chance. Castillo actively collaborates with theater companies such as Optional Company and the Teatro Ojo collective. Represented by Guadalajara90210, he is a co-founder of the Arrogante Albino Collective.
