Fanny Alloing – Birth of a chrysalis
She first transcribed the gestures of the dance into frozen sculptures that expressed the force of the movement captured by the moment. Bodies; all that remained was the skin, skin of plastered bands, of translucent tissue paper. This first passage brought her to terracotta sculptures and the frozen moment took the strength of the material. The expressions of sweetness, tenderness, abandonment, fear, or revolt took their full force in the red ocher earth hardened to the extreme as if to try to remove their fragility. So there is a permanent back and forth between the force of expression and the fragility of materials and this is where the worried nature of the artist is expressed and takes all its force.
