Ophelia Jacarini - Bejart Hong Kong

Inspired by the changeable nature of dance, this series was named after acclaimed French Ballet Dancer and Choreographer Maurice Béjart. Commanding the short-lived fragility of motion, Jacarini executes her vision in a way that investigates materialistic abstraction to express human frailty. Capturing fundamental dance movement to reflect fleeting impressions, the installation takes form as a collection of delicate kinetic embroideries depicting dancers. This series emphasises the human energy that drives movement, the strong force that is both transitory but impactful. The delicateness of the installations are juxtaposed against decaying surroundings, as Jacarini delivers subtle gestures of the human condition.

 

The temperament of our inevitable outcome is much like the abandoned spaces, once vibrant and full of motion, imprinted with memories of the past, now show signs of moments past and impressions of existence. It reminds us how everything is fleeting and every moment in motion leaves a long lasting invisible signature. Organic elements such as wind and light play works with the installation giving it movement and vibrance like something living. The comparison creates thought of our actions past. She expands beyond just the visuals of her work to include subtleties of reaction and awareness with the inclusion of her works surroundings.
