Embodied Elegance @ Sutra Gallery

Nice-based artist Michel Anthony's exhibition features a beautiful leaf-shaped sculpture, that resembles a duit pohon but in actuality contains 4 pairs of animals among twisting branches.  These beautiful natural textures, contrasts with the sharp forms depicted in Michel's dance sculptures, where line accentuates the active motion.  The smooth sheen on these expensive bronzes may imply perfection, but become a sterilised representation of the vigour in dance.
