Through Form is a solo exhibition by Rochelle Haley of paintings that follow topological drawings of dance. Haley reworks unpublished drawings by 20th century dance theorist Rudolph Laban in the mediums of acrylic, oil and resin on exposed linen. Laban’s drawings express a theory of space created by movement of the human form within what he calls a ‘kinesphere’ – an abstract, dynamic body bubble. The range of motion of a stationary body defines the limits of this imaginary space. Haley re-diagrams the space to body relation by transforming the drawn lines into painted forms. The paintings are alternative documents of dance that can reanimate future movement of the body.
