RAPTURE Exhibition- Art Positive

RAPTURE

Sculpture as Theatre Medium: Bronze. Theme: The bronzes embody not just dancers, but dancing itself; not just acrobats, but acrobatics. There is a unity which integrates dance, dramatic action and artistic rendition. The movement is frozen in a moment, as the performers strut their hour upon the stage and then are embossed forever on memory. They imprint themselves on the consciousness of the viewer from where ironically; they have sprung in the first place. Display: The space will contain the proscenium and the audience – all in bronze, with a dynamic connection between the performers and the viewer. The wings of the stage will be suggested in bronze trellises and the spotlight will fall on the drama on stage, metaphorically reflecting the theme like a long, philosophical poem. Through simplicity and true life staging, these bronzes will combine the most contemporary techniques with deep penetration into psychological symbolism.

The spotlight falls on the drama, reflecting the theme like a long, philosophical poem. Through simplicity, these bronzes combine contemporary techniques with honest symbolism.
