Photography

The photos derive from my performances in landscape, they are videostills. After fifteen years working on stage as a professional dancer (in Indian classical Dance), my body movements as well as my energetic perception of them reveal their importance for the creation of visual art. These works focus on a close relationship with nature and I share my attempt to create an intuitive communication as well with my subconscious aspects as with natural phenomena by “inserting myself” into the landscape.

The photos are exhibited as framed prints on canvas, in the format 50 x 70 cm.

I use photography for an aesthetic encounter between different artistic languages. I take shots of my drawings in the garden, with the shadows of the trees on paper. Thus comes a dramatical light on the characters, which gives them a theatrical aspect and a belonging to the physical realm of nature.

My photo series are created as photographed stills from my videos, since movement, its energetic perception and fading are constituent parts of my photographic work.
The fusion of body, environment and light reflexes visualizes my need for a relationship to my environment based on openness and empathy. I intend to sensitize the perception for just this relationship.
