Walkers (An Archeology of Paths) Movement Exposed Gallery Space, Utrecht, NL, 19 November / 23 December 2022

READ the text by Isabelle Vigier about the project here.

I assumed that I would turn back and go home here, at the place where the path had become impassable, but somebody had repaired it. The boggy trenches had been filled with broken pottery and I recognized it, bottle-green tiles and other shards with brown, cream, navy blue patterns. The china clay crunched under my feet.

Safe Piece (Installation)

September 30th, 2021 § 0 comments § permalink

Safe Piece (installation) at Movement Exposed Gallery Space, Utrecht, in September / October 2020.

Safe Piece (installation) was a special phase of the project of the same name, which started with a series of performances and was captured in a film (2019). Safe Piece was presented as an installation for the first time in Utrecht, centering on a selection of video stills by Isabelle Vigier and a soundscape made in collaboration with Andy Moor.

When her first child was seven months old choreographer Valentina Campora started a series of performances where she, the father of the child, and the baby are performing together in front of a small audience. Isabelle Vigier documented the sessions on video over four years.  The film Safe Piece shows the process of evolving an improvised dance piece through time. The family develops a non verbal language that allows them to be all at once within a multitude of polarized dimensions : private and public, playing and performing, working and mothering, caring and taking risks, improvising and creating choreography.  

For Safe Piece (installation) prints and sounds from the film are assembled in the gallery space, laying out the resonances of bodies through motion, play, rest, and shifting moods.
