De Gabriel Beckinger installation 2014
(un)STEADY contains the construction of a choreographic proposal. The site-specific installation reveals three projection surfaces, activated by the work of mixing the images, texts and sound materials, which engender the deployment of a multi-referential space in three dimensions. The tools that are cinema and choreography are articulated together to dialogue with architecture in a unique setting, the context, simultaneously, of production, editing and exhibition: the space of Le Fresnoy. From one screen to another, there is a shift from the technical to the poetic, danced action. The triptych is a detailed study of bodies acting in space: what do we see in a cinema body at work, trained in the special technique of steadicam when it films architecture, when it is itself filmed? The steadicammer is seen in turns as a body-machine, a ghostly presence, an organic presence, an imaginary power and a performer. The mechanics are constantly redrawn thanks to a parametric and open-ended editing, which works on the different materials in the body. The visitor is thus able to grasp fragments of narratives by moving through the installation. Beyond the video-dance genre and the usual links between dance and cinema, here the choreographic prism allows us to enter a kinaesthetic approach which breaks up actions and spaces, reflecting the reality of bodies shaped and fragmented by incorporated know-hows. A kaleidoscope of corpo realities at work. Marie Pons
