Nascent is a visual and visceral journey through and about being. The piece’s hybrid form exists between visual art, technology and dance. Raw footage of a performance by Australian Dance Theatre dancers is confronted with compositional techniques applied in the post-production stage. Images form a complex and dense rhythmic structure, stretching, smearing and distorting ‘real’ time. The dancers’gestures and bodies, poised and isolated, gradually become intertwined, indistinguishable and frenetic – turbulent, mutated fragments that form and reform.
Gina Czarnecki, *1965 in Immingham, lives in Liverpool, UK. Czarnecki started her career making animated film and video that focused philosophical questions through engaging with the visceral, psychological and biological body. Since the mid 1990’s this combined with her fascination with convergent developments in life sciences and technologies, their possible applications and how this shapes and informs identity. In her recent works Czarnecki works often in collaboration with musicians, programmers and scientists.
