Andante Spianato, video, color, 14’48”, 2016, O.T. Raum für aktuelle Kunst, Lucerne, 2016

An improvisation of the dancer Gabi Glinz over the music composed by Frédéric Chopin, Andante Spianato et Grande Polonaise, played solo by Arthur Rubinstein, expands the time of the music and the possible field of confrontation between her and something solumn, as the music of Chopin is, creating interruptions and  distortions. Her movements  extend an imaginary space of freedom between try and assumption, ideal and relative. Spianato, word used and invented in the music history only by Chopin, and which means flattened according to a landscape, reveals a new intermediate space created by the dancer.
