Artist in Residence: Marielle gonier
Dancer in the house! Meet the new artist-in-residence, Marielle Gonier!
She is a professional dancer and choreographer from Martinique, French Antilles. Before moving to Paris to continue her career, Marielle completed her artistic training in classical and contemporary dance in New York. In search of non-formatted writing, she creates her pieces on a singular vision where arts, movements, and emotions are mixed; where the starting point is the body-interiority relation towards universal language. She is also the founder of "Un jour/Une performance", where she is dedicated to creating artistic happenings, dance, and artistic creation in the living arts.
Currently, we are working with @mariellemadly to develop her research on the association between land art with living art by considering the human body as a material, which is also derived from nature. This research is a sensorial experience for her, where the art of exploring is equally important as the performance itself, if not more.
"When we work in the heart of nature, it gives us no other choice than to listen to it and respect it. It has the possibility to reduce our body as in the tiny dust particle. This power gives it an almost divine dimension. It is as intriguing as it is uncertain." said Marielle to explain her initial thoughts when she started work on this project.
The images are from some of her explorations.
