About Ramón Jiménez Cárdenas : Ramón Jiménez Cárdenas uses contextual design as an approach to deconstruct contested-structures which he defines as sites of social tension. His designs and sculptures often blend disciplines and comment on current events. Ramón is invested in redefining existing typologies as means of being critical about design. His intent to use the disciplines of art and design to comment on social schemes can give us a lens to decompose problems and look for contemporary solutions.
STATEMENT OF ART:
Ramón Jiménez Cárdenas blends sculpture and design at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. 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 mostly 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.
