PAVA Dance student work a photographic exploration of the action of falling was the starting point for Falling. The work addresses the physical feeling of the action of falling making it visible through a series of small photographic images hung in space to create the movement.
This detail of the work reveals it ’ s method of construction and the creation of a 3d space from the placement of 2D images. Each image was taken as a separate photographic image frame with the set of frames then being arranged and suspended in order to create the motion of the body. The work was hung opposite an open door so the viewer was confronted with the falling body hurtling towards them.
A further detail reveals the fragmented nature of the body, the fragmented nature of time as the body experiences the action of falling. Chloe has now completed an M.A. Fine Art degree at the Slade having won an arts and humanities scholarship. The work is exhibited this year in Making Room – The space between two and three dimensions at the Museum of Contemporary Art Massachusetts. USA

Chloe Ducharne. Stuck in Transition – A performance installation work which makes visible through the relationship of the body presence, bath environment and the liquid/solid material the psychological state prior to change, the place between one condition and another.
The work employed a visceral approach to materials having discovered a material which transformed from liquid to solid form in response to the heat of a live body. Throughout the performance different parts of the body became fixed within the bath making movement progressively more difficult. The sound of suction and release developed as the material changed from liquid to solid form and movements required ever more physical effort.
PAVA (Dance) Intimate Encounters investigates intimacy through text, live interaction with audience, casts of the body and sound.
