Abstract [en]

The performance Cuttlefish questions the form, identity and movement qualities of the dancer and through this it opens up for the discussion, what is a body? The body forms, the viewer can relate to on an emotional level, they became new personas and identities through the new movement qualities and forms. The costume design suggests and push both the choreography and the narrative further, since these new bodies, in themselves, are a choreography and narrative.Dansers: Viktoria Andersson, Anton Borgström och Linn Ragnarsson

CUTTLEFISH – Another body 

 

This work aims to explore other types of preforming bodies. Bodies extending themselves into material and creating expressions based on the body in a dialogue with materials expression. Through this aiming to remove connotations associated with the body through this create for the audience an experience of freedom of imagination. 

Fashion design involves an aesthetics that is based the body as form and is often changed in form according to norms, trends and ideals, shaping by “artificially changing the body’s silhouette and sometimes altering its natural structure” (Koda, 2012). Further, the alterations of dress affect how the body behaves and moves by restricting, enhancing (Bugg, 2006) and enabling movements through both physical and psychological means. In Cuttlefish, the body is instead altered in movement qualities and through this as form. 

The visual removal of the body, contributed to experienced new bodies, it became something that the viewer can relate to on an emotional level as they became new personas and identities. Audience experience a large vary of emotions and personal associations many of them concerning identity; who we are and how we exist together.

Abstract [en]

The interactive textile sculpture INSIDE/OUTSIDE questions the borders of the body through material form and movement. The form suggest and instructs the choreography and becomes a co-choreographer pushing the narrative further and opening up for interaction between bodies through its materiality. Exhibited at Järnhallen Gotehburg 12-20 may 2018.

Abstract [en]

The interactive performance INSIDE/OUTSIDE questions the borders of the body both through how material movement allow the body to extend in scale and by changing the inside and outside perspective of dress. Through this it also questions the notion of wearing. The form suggest and instructs the choreography and becomes a co-choreographer pushing the narrative further and opening up for interaction between bodies through its materiality.

2017 (English)Artistic output (Refereed)
Abstract [en]

Pictures and videos exhibited at Everything and Everybody as materials 2017. 

The work exemplifies how the body can extend into materiality and through this it questions the borders of the body not only in form, which is usually the case in fashion design, but also in movement qualities as temporal form. Further it high lightens the importance of awareness of movement qualities in materials of dress as they express the form.

The body is extended by its angular structure into the geometric form. 3 examples of the work was displayed. In its simplest form as lines connected with elastics, then the structure dressed in fabric and one where the structure is extended as squares.

Abstract [en]

This work aims to suggest materialized expressions based the moving body. As a principle of design, it treats the body as a whole and focuses on the in-betweens that the body creates in movement as aesthetics, not looking at its surface or the traditional ways of dividing the body (e.g. sweater, pants).

In conclusion, the results suggest that the body movement has a spatial continuation as dynamic space that can be materialized. It is a suggestion a principle of design that can be applied in fashion design, choreography, architecture, furniture design.

Abstract [en]

The presentation focuses on the collaborative process that occurs when designing garments for dance. It brings forth the benefits of the interdisciplinary production of knowledge that emerges when fashion is intersected with dance and through this moved. The collaborative process is exemplified in two projects Cuttlefish with Nicole Neidert and INSIDE/OUTSIDE with Karolin Kent and brings forth benefits of different backgrounds, expertise and perspectives in development of experimental costumes.

Abstract [en]

In dance many choreographers uses neutral garments not to distract too much from the movement the ”natural” body performs. Still these garments paints the body with color, form, identity and movement qualities. The work exemplifies how the body can extend into materiality and through this it questions the borders of the body not only in form, which is usually the case in fashion design, but also in movement qualities as temporal form. Further it high lightens the importance of awareness of movement qualities in materials of dress as they express the form. The potential of dress in dance is explored in three chapters. For each of these, materials were chosen and arranged in order to provide an additional layer to the movement that the body naturally performs, allowing material to transform the body into various figures of movement. The first part introduces the use of dress in dance and how dress acts with the moving body. The second part explores how movement with the origin in the body can extend spatially and the last part focuses on the materials ability to interpret and materialize the movement.  

The result of this work suggest that dress has the potential in dance as both choreographic tool and movement quality of equal importance as the movement of a body in a dance performance. Further it intersects the aesthetics of dance, a temporal aesthetic, with the aesthetics of garments, as a form based aesthetic, as it suggests dress as temporal design, allowing dress to create a new body of movement.
