"Untitled, Gestures and Postures": Performances by Yasmine Hugonnet


On the occasion of the sixth edition of Luxembourg Art Week, Mudam Luxembourg – Musée d’Art Moderne Grand-Duc Jean presents a new work by the Swiss choreographer, dancer and researcher Yasmine Hugonnet. Conceived for three dancers, Untitled, Gestures and Postures investigates the relationship between form, image and sensation.

Programmed alongside the exhibition Charlotte Posenenske: Work in Progress, Hugonnet will present a site-specific performance responding to Posenenske's work. Both artists engage with modular systems; comprising units that can be added, deleted or modified freely. Hugonnet thinks of a sequence of gestures and postures as expressive modules that carry personal meaning and evolve constantly into new narratives. Posenenske on the other hand, created industrially-fabricated modular sculptures, which were produced in unlimited series and assembled or arranged by ‘consumers’ at will.
Hugonnet and her dancers adopt a series of poses that suggest alternately intense engagement or complete abandonment. The agility strength and apparent weightlessness of the performers, allows the audience to travel through the moving images that dances in their own imaginary resources.
Untitled, Gestures and Postures, is composed of existing scores of earlier pieces, including Le Récital des postures (2014) (Swiss Dance Prize 2017), Se Sentir vivant (2017) and Seven Winters.
