Use the body track to write a private and unrestrained diary: Caroline Denervaud

The body is the language I communicate with the world, my safe haven.

First time saw Caroloine Denervaud When I was in the film, I didn't really think she was dancing. In the black and white film with some impurities, she lay on a blank piece of paper. In slow motion, she curled up and stretched out. Like the moment she just woke up, she still wanted to go to bed, and left and right to stretch and stretch; Then, she pointed to the small piece of charcoal with his body moving his arms and then his wrist, leaving a trail of movement on the paper.

. What was the reason I originally wanted to dance?

I have been dancing since I was impressed. I think this is the way I can express myself the most.

Caroline was born in Lausanne, Switzerland in 1978. Her mother is also a body art worker. She is very familiar with her body dancing. When most of the children in adolescence are looking for ways to prove themselves, Caroline knows that dance is her path, and that she understands that only in the process of dancing can she release the most sensitive emotions in her heart and touch others. . With her youthful youth and enthusiasm, she was inspired to be a professional dancer, went to the Laban Centre in London and Beaux Art in Paris, and began her exploration of the dance.

However, the path of life is always a bit rugged, and Caroline can't dance again because of a serious injury. It is a ten-year stop. Until she realized once again how much she missed her most expressive way, she decided to fade the academic style and skill, and let the body be more free and free to create and express.

"If the only thing you want to do when you wake up is writing, then you are a writer." - Letters to a Young Poet,Rainer Maria Rilke

Think of this sentence in the book Letters to a Young Poet. The reason why a person is an artist is not whether art is his job, but whether he has the heart to create. Even if Caroline walks rough on the road to dance, it does not mean that she can't continue to express herself in the body.In 2014, she used her old camera to record the mood and feelings of the day; she used the canvas, the body and a pen to edit the dynamic diary of one paragraph after another, and became a unique composite media work belonging to her.

At the junction of art and life, Caroline remembers the word "Les champs des possibles", experimenting with possibilities in this space of intersection, looking for balance to imbalance, imbalance to balance In those moments when the gap occurs; it seems to be a simple concept, but as small as oneself, as large as everything.

My work has no preparation or presupposition, and the central idea is "this moment." At this moment, I want to release my innermost subtle feelings.

And this is also a journey of exploration and experimentation without end, because there are too many emotions and states in life waiting for her to express; leaning back against the wall, stretching the arms, then squatting down, or reversing the order, The lines produced on the canvas will always change differently. The present space has changed over time in the next second, and the so-called "self" has never changed completely because of time and space and the body.

All of this research and exploration is not for finding any answers, nor for the goals that must be achieved. Caroline has to do it honestly to record itself, trying to tell the viewer in a short film that the work is inherited, inspired and inspired. origin.

Sometimes she expresses her own energy, sometimes her inspiration comes from a skirt or a pottery; the relationship with the object, the feeling in the film, she recorded in a real and immediate way. In her work, the process of "understanding" is a lot of fun, and I often look at it again; I am left in the atmosphere, but there is nothing to explain what I "understand".

. In the day-to-day records and research, have you found your favorite and recurring dynamics?

That should be "falling". I often stand first and then let myself fall onto the drawing paper. It is difficult to practice falling. After all, we don't need to fall down deliberately in life; but in my process, "falling down" also means "letting go". Moreover, I really like the floor.

Caroline produces a large number of dynamic diaries and develops abstract styles from it; the static theme paintings are like "Garden" or "The Lair", and the turbid color of the earth also carries the experimental mood, like a record. There are a variety of perfect visions, no intuitions that have been deliberately modified. Surprisingly, the "unbalance" is so natural and comfortable.

Unlike most painters who want to draw drafts first, or perform artists to move first, Caroline's art is alive from nothing; in the face of creation, she washes her empty head and makes everything that is next naked. And what do you want to break through in the next stage? "I just want to keep recording. I look at my video work over and over again, and when I see a few seconds to surprise myself, it is my next stage, the so-called results, and my continued motivation to study the body. I am not a planner. I just keep creating and accepting all kinds of cooperation and keeping an open heart! She explained. "Because I am moving to a new home, the most common thing I think about recently is, will I have a good time there?" The answer was lovely and smiley.

I think, in the new home, she will continue to feel the floor back and forth with the body; perhaps, she will record the two arms unfolding, and that is just the width of the window frame; or, let the body fall and roll over the bedside Circle back... The abstract lines are like the bits and pieces of life that are created and intertwined, from the changes of the body and the world in minutes and seconds. At the end of the interview, I remembered Caroline's favorite sentence: "Life is not a rehersal." Responding to the freedom of his work, her art is to write the diary of life in a gesture of truth. Next, there is no end.

Discover Kyoto, a new stop for travellers: 0 CAFE + INN B&B Cafe

At the end of March and early April, I will give myself a small holiday to come to Kyoto for four days and three nights. Since it is a holiday, why bother to complete the trip? Between the temple and the old street, I walked around in the alleys and tried to avoid the crowds – this is my favorite way to get to know a new place. Shortly after leaving the flower to see the path, I walked into a quiet alley and met 0 CAFE+INN in two steps. This is a three-storey Japanese-style traditional lodge with a modern, graceful floor-to-ceiling design that is naturally attracted. The owner, Tskiji Hisashi, was a student of the famous dyeing artist and painter Genshou Yamamoto. He always wanted to open a coffee shop with a fusion of art, art gallery and contemporary style. The house he inherited was refurbished; the first floor was a coffee shop, and the second floor was a small hotel, leaving only the third floor space for himself and his wife. The converted interior combines original wood furniture and flooring with minimalist lines, complemented by rich plant embellishments, giving the store a fresh, serene and warm atmosphere, while also standing out from many pure Japanese or European stores in Kyoto. . ...
