Ramón Jiménez Cárdenas

Ramón Jiménez Cárdenas’s practice blends the disciplines of sculpture and design. He uses contextual design as his preferred approach to creating objects and sculpture pieces. His typologies and materials used in objects are often derived from design insights seen in his hometown Oaxaca, Mexico. These insights are also seen in architectural structures such as construction sites or temporary building arrangements which carry narrative and a graphic language of their own. Ramón’s themes are often delivered from contested structures. He defines this term as a physical space which an individual, community, or political power could tamper with and benefit from doing so.
