In unmediated movement, Mel Bles sees freedom, simplicity and universality. The artist has created a series of short films and risograph prints which seek to document exactly this; women, who are not dancers, using their bodies to express joy, magic and meaning.


“These short films are the start of small conversations between women and myself,” Bles explains. Free to express themselves however they wish without tools or direction to contaminate their use of the space around them, her subjects are invited to let themselves go, and to find new meaning in that sentiment.


In movement, the artist continues, a gesture or a turn can become an instrument of pure pleasure. It is a new language which, permitted by the camera, both artist and subject can learn to speak.
