DANCE IS MY LANDSCAPE - A Photographic Exhibition
12 June 2015 - 14 June 2015
FREE EVENT - NO BOOKINGS NECESSARY
Photographer Gregory Lorenzutti finds and frames movement with the keen eye and kinetic sensibility of a dancer. Dance is My Landscape plays with the boundaries between movement and image, body and land, Brazil and Australia, working the hybrid in-between of art forms. Lorenzutti's skill lies in his ability to capture dance's line of flight while documenting many Australian choreographic works. This he mingles with agile bodies and wild scents transported from his homeland Brazil. Lorenzutti's images flow as landscapes, immensely vast and rich, geographies of endless corporeal horizons.
In his native Brazil, Gregory Lorenzutti worked with outstanding choreographers and was a member of Companhia de Ballet da Cidade de Niteroi (Niteroi City Ballet). He performed several principal roles from its repertoire in Brazil, South and North America and Europe. As a teacher, Gregory has been invited to teach contemporary classes and workshops in many dance schools and companies in Brazil and Australia.
In 2009, Lorenzutti started to study one of his old passions: photography. Since he moved to Melbourne in 2012, Lorenzutti has extensively documented the independent dance scene in Australia, including Melbourne, Sydney and Perth. Now based in Australia, Lorenzutti is particularly interested in the relationship between movement, photography and cultural identity and in developing interdisciplinary projects which cross and shift borders.
