Anne Sylvie Henchoz completed a Master of Contemporary Art Practices at HEAD, Geneva, in 2012.
With a polymorphic practice that includes action, construction and narrative. She stages situations conceived as ceremonies, inventing a vocabulary that is at once poetic, physical and choreographic, in order to speak about a possible relation between people. Creating sensual, focal and expansive encounters, she looks at her practice through a prism of language, embodying 'film-like spaces', expanded cinema, performance and editions.
Most influential references come from postmodern dance, life’s experiences, gender and cultural studies, and biographies. Work draws upon a plasticity of interactions, close to the ‘Poetics of relation’ of Edouard Glissant.
Treasuring idea of ‘fluid identity’, in order to question commonplace ideas about identity, projects are shaped by the desire to experience profound states of reality with others.
