"The Impossible Movement Series" focuses on the stop-motion technique as it relates to choreography. The initial point of this project is to examine the notion of illusion and different modes of representation of movement. The practice of stop-motion is used as an analytical tool for movement and the perception of movement and time. In doing so we want to enquire into the gap between reality and perception, which is usually hidden behind our reading conventions.

THE BIG SHOT

workspace Brussels, may 2011

"The Big Shot" is the outcome of a research workshop held at Workspace Brussels. It is a first rough sketch of a stop-motion film that includes the position of the artist observer as well as the productive means and methods. It shows an arrangement of animated work-stations in which every action is synchronized and every detail is captured. The animating subject becomes an animated object.

in collaboration with the workshop-participants Wouter Huis, Maud Levefer, Maya Wilsens, Susanne Bentley, Begum Lerot, Ariane Loze, Leslie Mannés, Charlotte Guns and Albert Quesada.
