Emilie Gallier


I consider space as a conjunction between virtual fields and a palpable environment. Particles, geodesics, and forces are together with our visible space. Our senses do distort reality. What can I see, or cannot? Beyond the horizon my knowledge is non-existent. But it happens that nature provides me tools to see energetic fields I would never sense. Two fabrics are rubbed; they exchange charges and suddenly attract each other, and even generate sparks. Our bodies are constantly transformed and crossed by forces; in Horizon, dance is an energy that travels through the body and expends beyond it.
Identified in term of amplitudes, the movements evolve from a micro-motion of the body to a wide transformation. It challenges our perception of absolute movement as the one we visualize. The music accompanies this question by playing with frequencies and volumes. Sounding waves and curved bodies reveal the mixed space. The body as a barometer, with an amazing ability: showing the invisible.
