Exhibition // Dancecamera SPACES, 2023

1 June - 4 June


Exhibition 1 – 4 June

In a performative dialogue with a camera, dancers and musicians create their very own new motion patterns.

Their rhythm and the dynamics of emerging soundscapes and image spaces react with the light-sensitive emulsion of the image carrier and concentrate themselves in the form of long time exposure.

The photographic paper shows both a shadowy figurative image of the situation, as well as tracing the movements of the dancers, which become a line drawing.

This image is made possible by a 3D-printed camera construction that is connected to the dancers’ limbs.

The dance camera is a further development of past works in which Paul Pape has already dealt with wind movements on photographic paper.

Pape adds a wind-light pendulum to the almost classic idea of a Pencil of Nature, which Henry Fox Talbot used in an early work in the history of photography to turn light itself into the creator of the image, so that the wind, which is itself invisible, leaves traces on the image carrier. In “Dancecamera Spaces”, the performers create traces of their movement in space. Standing still means becoming visible, movement means leaving traces.
