In 2000, with a dancer from the William Forsythe Company, Arno renews his relationship between drawing and space. To dance is to engrave one’s body in space like a line on a page. «Choreography»: drawing is the engraving of a line as an extension of movement. The printing of a gesture in space. The print is defined by the gesture which itself is allowed by the space. Thus, Arno fully apprehends the space around him, draws forms in the vacuum to better conceive in three dimensions. Dance is ephemeral, while visual works are most often perennial, stable; the series «Gesture» presents both arts.
