HAM & Spring Movement Festival

  • Center For Performance Research

Emphasizing individuality; each dancer in HAM is always “soloing”-- looking and being looked at, sensing unholding, enjoying what is free; breath and gravity. we are not abstractions, we are not sites of occupation or projects of improvement. Our dancing bodies are a symphony of polyglot, polyrhythmic conversations.

Am I An Image Moving#7 at Dixon Theater

  • Dixon Theater

It is the art of talking about something by referring to something else. You see something that moves and you wonder what is this unidentified  object that speaks to your dizzy senses. This may well look like a concert of silence, a roar of sound textures. You gently distinguish some forms, not knowing what moves between your vision and your hearing. Welcome to the boudoir of the roaring insconscient.

Collaborators:  Shani Ha for the "Embody sculptures" (to confirm)

Mike Bennett (guitarist) live music + Mystery Guests

  • The Invisible Dog Art Center

School tours of HERVÉ TULLET's exhibit "This Isn’t Trash" will be organized over the course of its run, guided by teaching artist Amélie Gaulier-Brody, who was trained by Tullet.

Wildly imaginative artist Hervé Tullet—known for his beloved children’s book Press Here—presents his first-ever exhibition in New York This Isn’t Trash.

He will fill The Invisible Dog Art Center with hundreds of new pieces, some as tall as 8 feet, created at his studio in Harlem and onsite. Colorfully painted, torn, taped, creased and reassembled sheets of paper will be hung from the ceiling. Together, they will assemble into a layered, multi-dimensional forest of artworks. Visitors will meander through, encountering new viewpoints, windows, and surprise compositions.

Embody at Radiator Gallery

  • Radiator Gallery

Shani Ha and Amélie Gaulier-Brody
Sunday, December 11th, 5pm at Radiator Gallery
Duration of Performance: approx. 20 mins .

The “Embody” series play with abstraction and metamorphose to incarnate complex shifting identities and interactions. Performed since 2011, the Embody blurs the boundaries between sculpture, bodies and representation. For this iteration Shani Ha invited performance artist Amélie Gaulier-Brody to invest and interpret Embody.

This series of sculpture is the catalysis for photographs, installations and performances. Shani Ha invites the audience, performers and dancers to interact with the piece and invest them in different situations.

The soft sculptures are constantly shifting and adapting to the context and silhouettes, creating successive ephemeral sculptural forms. Embody exists in different temporality and formats, the sculptures can be contemplated steady, in action or be activated.

About the exhibition Neither Here Nor There
Nov 18th, 2016 – Jan 20th, 2017

Featuring works by:
Anne Mourier, Fanny Allié, Jeanne Verdoux, Julien Gardair
Marilia Destot, Nicolas Touron, Shani Ha, Simon Courchel

Curated by: Nicolas Touron / Fanny Allié

The exhibition Neither Here Nor There presents the works of eight artists who all share the same birthplace – France and who voluntarily migrated several years ago to New York City.

Not quite from one side or the other anymore, a nonnative constantly oscillates between two realities, fully belonging to none. Through mixed media, sculpture, photography and painting, the artists of Neither Here Nor There examine this state of being slightly “out of tune” and how their experience may have impacted their work over the years. The exhibit also aims to highlight a common thread between all the works - a feeling of detachment of the human figure from its urban environment, within a context of personal narration and a touch of absurdity. The sense of isolation and fragmentation that can emanate from the works is nonetheless often counterbalanced with whimsicality and humor.

In her series Gowanus Dance, Marilia Destot isolates and places her model in a cinematic or sequence form, her photographic work focusing on the intimate writing of time and space intermingled. Exploring the same medium, Simon Courchel creates in each of his photographs an urban choreography or performance thus referencing his background as a dancer; the figure being always insulated and centered within the frame. In Anne Mourier’s small sculptures depicting domestic scenes, the figure is removed all together but constantly in mind, like a ghostly presence, only the habitat remains. Nicolas Touron’s ceramic and video installation Artificial Landscape is a visual fable, existing as a landscape of absurdity in which a dead cicada found at the Brooklyn Botanical Gardens during his numerous explorations there, plays the main character. 

Jeanne Verdoux’s prints show the human figure deprived from any context but in constant motion, sometimes in the verge of falling, where ground and air merge into one dimension. Fanny Allié’s characters, often placed on a white background are also removed from their habitat or environment; their urban feel come through nonetheless. In his Artforum mashup series, Julien Gardair combines and cuts Artforum advertisement pages, revealing from these art magazines human silhouettes intermingling with animals, body and abstract elements and creating a chaotic mass. Lastly, in order to remedy the isolation she may find in fast-paced cities, Shani Ha creates versatile sculptures and devices in an effort to bring people together or to add a comforting touch to her surrounding.

We are french, we are estonian, we are american. we are straight we are queer. we are jewish we are atheist. We are dancing in the anthropocene. We are alone together. We are a flock of humans. 

We wonder:

Is there a post-humanist self? Are we only human? What moves us out in and out our private physical island? Can we see the shade of our icebergs digging into the archive of the being before us?

Amélie Gaulier-Brody will perform with a Shani Ha's sculpture and the musician Joe Morris during the opening of the exhibition in collaboration between the visual artist Shani Ha and the photographer Ariane Lopez-Huici.

Ariane Lopez-Huici's photographs "Shani Ha" will be on view in her exhibition "The Sculptural Forms of Shani Ha" at Art3Gallery in NY.
Lopez-Huici’s fantastic eye for light, shapes and living form captured the enigmatic essence of Shani Ha’s Body Sculptures and brought them to her world of freedom, strength, poetic and broken taboos.

Ariane Lopez-Huici and Alain Kirili are the curators of this event. They will host the event JUNE 1st at 7PM at their Loft, 17 White Street, New York

Using the creatures in the Le bestiaire exhibition as inspiration, these workshops encourage children to imagine their own creature on a blank costume. Devised by graphic designer Amélie Doistau and illustrator Tomoë Sugira, this design laboratory is inspired by the forms, colors, and patterns of existing animals. Once all the animal reveries are down on paper, the carnival can begin. The beasts are unleashed! They roar, sing, meow, growl… Fly, swim, run, jump, and pounce.

 I'm happy to invite you to my solo research presentation Am I An Image Moving January  27th  at 7:30 pm at Chez Buschwick

Chez Bushwick's WIP Showings are free and open to the public! 4 artists will showtheir works in progress. A guest moderator will initiate the dialogue, questions and feed-backs after the showings with the public and the artists.

 

Am I An Image Moving

The notions of indeterminacy and improvisation, and the place they give to the random and the unfinished, compose the framework for my choreographic investigations. The way I work is a process of constant sliding and of making incongruous connections, reflecting the random path navigation of my thought-movement.

Dance as a shelter. Dance as a transition. Dance as an opening space. Dance as an image moving. Dance as a hearing. Dance as a ghost alive. Dance as a cavern. Where does imagination come from? What part of imagination do I carry with my spiritual-macrobiotoique- cellular-atomic-anatomic-ordinary-physical body? If I produce sound with my breath and start to produce sounds with my mouth, tongue, lips, velum, cheeks, teeth, throat, vocals cords, could I make choreographic art? I mean could I create a dance from the breath-sounds moving inside my body-cavern and be moved by this invisible material—as my thoughts—and call this a dance?

Reversible Skirt at Glasshouse / ’Forms of Repetition'

  • Glasshouse

FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 6, 7-11PM

at Glasshouse / 246 Union Ave, Brooklyn, 11211

Reversible Skirt  was created for the exhibition Notes On Performance ,  The  E MOTION AL  Architecture of the Body curated by FrancesZ. Cooper in July 2015 at Song For Presidents Gallery. The performance explores the ritualistic aspect of a 5-minute gesture. The action starts with the production of vocalizations and finishes by covering the upper body with the skirt. Like the image of an hourglass timer, the core of the inverted action is non-timed but the intention of the gesture, rooted in the resonance of the sonorous body, measures the cyclic length of time between the first image and the last. 

’Forms of Repetition' is an evening dedicated to durationality in performance making. The entire space of Glasshouse will be transformed into a pulsation of repeated action. Unlike theater, music and dance visual performances are almost never rehearsed. They occur and exist in real time. Repetition allows performance the space to explore itself while in the making, allows it to be a process of revelation rather than a familiar choreography. Hosted by Lital Dotan & Eyal Perry. $FREE
