AVA Gallery Artist's Talk: Memories in Solitude

Themes of Movement and Stillness reflect the creative process of Carla Kimball’s photography installation at AVA Gallery in Lebanon, NH, entitled Solitude. While photography by its very nature captures moments of stillness, Carla has long been most intrigued by how to present her photographs in a such way that gives the viewer a tangible experience of movement.

On Sunday, August 16 Carla will be giving an online artist’s talk about her four-year photo and video journey with a group of dancers, a red chair, a farm, and the wilderness. Marie Fourcaut, dancer and choreographer, will join her in a conversation about the origins of this work and their collaboration over the years that has led to the exhibit’s photos and videos. The talk will culminate with a showing of a movement response video to the exhibit.

With a minor in Dance as part of her Bachelor’s Degree from Montclair State College (1975) and a specialization in Expressive Arts Therapy as part of her Masters degree in Counseling Psychology from Lesley College (1993), Carla has integrated her interest in both dance and photography in ways that engage her audiences to interact with her art and each other. Carla’s dance interests are primarily within the post-modern improvisational genre. She has studied and performed with and photographed the dancers of Ensemble Marie with Upper Valley choreographer Marie Fourcaut. Since 2016, Carla and Marie along with dancers from the Ensemble have journeyed to Vermont farms, forests and geological sites to photograph and video tape dance and movement moments. Collaborating with Marie, Carla has recently produced a movement video in response to her solo exhibit at AVA Gallery in Lebanon, NH.
