The series presented to you is an artistic exploration of movement and light through dance. Lucie Poirier offers us here a meeting between two forms of artistic expression which oppose and answer each other between immediacy and continuity. Living and ephemeral art, the dance leaves no trace but remains in our mind as a vibrant memory and a pure emotion. Sensitive to the timelessness and aesthetics of black and white, Lucie works with shadow and light to sculpt the bodies of dancers. The photograph sublimates the movement, it freezes the time of a moment for eternity. Deeply inspired by the poetic dimension of the human being, the photographer is in the same artistic quest for excellence and perfection as the dancer. From effort and rigor come grace and harmony. Lucie Poirier leads us through different disciplines of contemporary dance, a journey of purity and elegance that invites contemplation.
