Hommage à Maurice Béjart | studies for a movement





The installation plays with the traffic and movement of the pedestrians in the gallery on all spacial levels of the metro station. The spectators can see the movement of the dancers by the movement of their own body. An optical illusion, a lenticular technique, allows different superimposed images to simulate a sequence of dance movements. Each movement of a single plateau was diveded into 25 frames. This would usually generate 1 sec of film.

The artwork was officially inaugurated on September 9, 2010. The City of Lausanne pays tribute to Maurice Béjart and his work by giving a particular identity to the metro station m2 which already bears his name.
