Kate Gilmore imposes upon her own physicality in post-feminist critiques of sex and gender. Gilmore shapes an aggregate of performance, video, sculpture and photography with self-imposed restrictions and challenging objectives that recall the absurdity of Dadaism, the hyperbole of political cartoons, and the rigidity of political correctness. Thus Gilmore may find herself thwarted by high-heeled shoes in a humbling endeavor to surmount a literal wall of her own construction. Gilmore not only animates the essences and suppositions of ego and id, but positions them in a duel for personal integrity.
Kate Gilmore was born in Washington D.C. and lives and works in New York, NY.
