Jean Kirsten: For Laban

Submitted by Charlotte Wile - December 4, 2014

The artist Jean Kirsten's fothcoming exhibit at Ohio State University will be of special interest to the Laban Community:

"Jean Kirsten: For Laban," Urban Arts Space, (January 13, 2015 to February 6, 2015).
"Inspired by Laban’s theories of dynamics of movement and the Laban Movement Analysis by dancer and Laban specialist Sabine Fichter, Kirsten began examining and sketching for his own work. The dancestudies series works shown at Urban Arts Space are from his time in London when he attended Fichter’s lectures in Laban Movement Analysis at Metropolitan University. There he took over 400 photographs of the dancers and used the photos as sketches for his screen prints. Kirsten’s paper series incorporate Labanotation space signs. At first glance these works look like abstract paintings, but familiarity with Labanotation reveals information about spatial orientation in the works."
