InSand was originally conceived as a series of photographs from the work "Bodies in Space" by Gisella Sorrentino.
These shots are born from the meeting and by the 'spontaneous' interaction of two main elements: the body and the emotional space of a dancer –in this case Sabine Heubusch- and the physical space in which the performer is immersed, and that in turn inspires the movement.
A third, but crucial, element of interaction, which is also completely spontaneous, it is purely mechanical: at each movement of the performer, it is superimposed - through a double exposure - the physical environment, this time without the human element.
At the Gallery NOoSphere Arts we showed InSand as photo Installation with dance performance. In this work in progress, Sabine improvises and expands the movements and the feelings captured in the photographs projected on the wall.
In the first series of InSand in black and white, looking for straightness and protection, the dancer is fighting the traces that life leaves on us.
In the second series of InSand in color, Sabine let grow what is inside her body: sickness and health.
In the last series InWater she frees herself trough a process of cleansing, undoing and coming loose.
