About The Work

Kelly Nipper’s Interval consists of four chromogenic prints, to be installed equidistant apart. Each photograph depicts a repetition of spatial syncopation. The camera’s framing and the architecture shown in the images cut up what was a continuous sequence and a cohesive body. While looking out from behind a wood screen, Nipper’s dancer enacts a precisely paced sequence of balletic poses, the movement of which is deliberately fixed in space and time by the camera. The work is about the intervals in architecture, between parts of an object, between poses, between bodies, and between photographs. The choreography the dancer enacts is planned for the geometry of the architecture, the screen and the framing of space and time that the camera enforces. It is a photographic exploration of how sequential instances can suggest movement or prompt a viewer to imagine continuity in the dancer’s changes in space over time. This work is in permanent collections at MCA Chicago, Orange County Museum of Art, the Hammer Museum in L.A., and the Israel Museum.
