“The Dance” is the most recent installation of artist Benjamin Shine – and it’s not your usual art. For this particular exhibit, he uses the delicate fabric that is tulle to form floating sculptures of people interacting with each other in a fluid motion.
With the use of over 2000 meters of tulle, Shine produced each of his creations by layering, pleating, and sewing – all done by hand. There is no other support for the sculptures aside from thread. It is hung from the ceiling, layered in shapes, and backlit to fully capture the artist’s art in mind. According to Shine, “this installation aims to evoke that sense of flow and momentum.”
“The Dance” was commissioned by Australia-based Canberra Centre Complex.
