Ximena Garnica and Shige Moriya

Ximena Garnica and Shige Moriya are a Colombian and Japanese multidisciplinary artist duo. Their collaborative works have manifested in live performances, publications, research projects, sculptural, video, light, and mixed-media installation art.

“We are committed to questions of coexistence, perception, and being. Through our practice, we expose the multiplicity of spatial and temporal intervals existing within the body and between materials and environments”.

Shige and Ximena are the co-founders and artistic directors of the LEIMAY Ensemble and the LEIMAY arts organization. The LEIMAY Ensemble is a group of five dancers who work regularly throughout the year creating body-rooted works and developing the LEIMAY LUDUS practice. Current LEIMAY Ensemble members include Masanori Asahara, Krystel Copper, Derek DiMartini, Andrea Jones, and Mario Galeano.
