Flames and Fire

Scanner’s video artwork, Flames and Fire is an exploration of the complex rhythms of flamenco and its passionate and vigorous movements. Fascinated with the sheer force and physicality of the stamping and hand gestures of this form of Spanish folk dance, Scanner focusses on the movement of the feet of a dancer, Zarina Rimbaud-Kadirbaks, wearing vivid red shoes and net stockings.

In Flames and Fires, the dancer’s steps are slowed down to a mnemonic pattern and accompanied by a hovering harmonic texture. The sound of the shoes tapping on the floor fluctuate in pitch creating a dramatic and sensual work that explores the textured beauty of flamenco, revealing the clean elegance underpinning this flamboyant dance. Flames and Fires was produced during a residency at the Rauschenberg Foundation in Captiva, Florida in 2017.
