photographs eye-catchingly expand the ephemeral appearance of dancing bodies
into a kaleidoscope of superimposed moments of time. Their coagulated pictorial
form reminds the movement in its temporal appearance and makes the mere
sequence of moments of time meaningless. These are deep times from which the
moving bodies address the gaze of the beholder. The photographs are thus
neither subject to chronos in order to capture the temporal form of movement as
a sequence, nor do they claim a deprivation of time of the 'pure' form of
movement of dancing bodies in the sense of Aion. And the photographs also
refuse the empathetic moment of the camera's gaze, which has been paid homage
in the history of dance photography and which ambushes an elevated
instantaneousness in movement in order to expose the essence of dance as a
phantasm of the pure presence of its bodies. Corinna Rosteck, on the other
hand, trusts in the happiness of Kairos and "communicates with only one
aspect of things and that aspect would be the least, the most fleeting".
