GOLEM is born from the encounter between dancer/choreographer Julien Carlier and sculptor Mike Sprogis. 

This dialogue between these two artists of different disciplines and generations creates an ongoing performance, digging up the analogies between their respective artistic practices, of sculpture and breakdance.

 

GOLEM is built like a distorted mirror image of their journeys through life. One interprets dancing as an ephemeral sculpture in movement; the other interprets the sculptor’s movements and his medium as a form of dance from which it draws his inspiration. Situated in between, there is clay. When manipulated, this element leads to confusion between the lifeless and the living forms, the earth becomes alive and the human momentarily reverts into an inert element. 

The title was chosen to symbolize the double image of the creature being shaped from the creator’s image. This performance plays on the shaper/shaped relationship and highlights the influence that both artists exert on each other. 

The piece also evokes the idea of time running out and the consequences that reflect on both mind and body.
