study no. 1 (light), (kris kross) & (action) is a triptych for a female body. It offers the viewer a series of live sculptural images that evolve in the dark, in the light and in the space. A series of manipulations and  transformations engender new ways of seeing  this female form.

study no. 2 builds on the compositional logic from studio no. 1 (kris kross), but introduces the use of objects and multiple bodies. What develops is a strict choreography of movement as action, which is perceived as spontaneous. An object’s predefined function is altered and become vehicles for action with no purpose.
