Kinesphere

The kinesphere is the space accessible to limbs of a person. This imaginary sphere placed around the person is mostly used in dance and theater and symbolizes the personal space of the artist who is the center of this sphere. Based on this principle, Clara Fanise takes position at the center of the sheet and draws what she sees around her. His own body for self-portraits and the surrounding space for the series of work-spaces. In the series of « Kinesphères-ink », we can see the process, each position of the artist generates a different form. This creation process naturally produces in addition to the represented space, an empty space, a white area, which is the real space where the body was located at the time of creation. This neutral zone, negative pattern of a missing body is very interesting in the drawing.
