Cilla Vee - Life ArtsSpecial Projects: Motion Sculpture

“Motion Sculpture is the beauty of the living body as pure art.
Every second can be captured and frozen in time as a piece of sculpture.
It is constantly, incrementally changing and shifting, like the sands of the desert, creating new landscape and form with every breath.
It is a sculpture in which the clay is the creator,
perpetually reinventing itself.
Smooth and seamless, it is all transition, yet all vital shape.
Sometimes lingering for a moment while the eyes, a breath, a gentle impulse from inside the form quietly forges a new direction in space.
Motion Sculpture is the profound meeting of time, space, energy and matter in art.”

Motion Sculpture is an original movement style, developed by
Cilla Vee – Life Arts director Claire Elizabeth Barratt.
There are elements in the movement quality that are similar to meditational practices such as Tai Chi, Yoga and Butoh.

In performance, Motion Sculpture is usually used within the context of “Movement Installation” wherein the performers exist for an extended duration as part of an environment.

A Motion Sculpture Movement Installation can be designed for any event.
