Gradiva, and the secret rediscovery of movement

*** *** ***

Raymonde Carasco's Gradiva - esquisse I (1978) :

A dream of betweenness materialised.

Movement and suspension. Promulgation and dissolution. Flesh and stone. (Shadow and stone. Stone and stone.) Horizontal and vertical. The visible movement of garment and heat.

A fragmented but concrete presence is expressed as its dissolving gestures. The terrible mystery and monumentality of motion. Raymonde Carasco was there (with Bruno Nuytten) with her camera, filming atoms in motion, and all the exhumed gestures of our existence contained therein.
