Inspiration of the movement

Pulse of a movement

In collaboration with contemporary dancer Karsten Kroll, I explored an experimental creative process. Instead of predetermining the pose, I allowed myself to be guided by the improvisation of the dancer, letting his performance inspire the outline of the sculpture.

The work takes on a life of its own when we achieve synchronicity between our energies and harmony becomes almost palpable. I sculpt from the live model in motion for a few hours, then I work further on the piece to instill it with the emotion that stays with me and fuels my imagination. Some of our work sessions were conducted in public, during Culture Days, in Montreal, Quebec, Canada.
