Agnès Aubert (Geneva, 1985) is a visual artist and performer, as well as an art therapist. Specialized in movement therapy, with freestyle dancing and freeplay theatre,
she uses creative tools as a human support for healing and transformation.
Her intimate appeal for native American traditions and her passion for etherical and archetypal totemic dimension, shows up in her work under a symbolical form.
Her artwork is non-conceptual, although some themes related to animal kingdom,
human conceptions, and shamanistic traditions often appear.
She never plans what will show up in her visual work and performances, rather letting her inspiration guide each move of the way.
She sees her creative process as a child drawing, a "squiggle" in which she would emphasize some shapes, curves and angles which are already there.
In the first stage, she keeps her eyes closed in order to get rid of the controlling mind. In the second stage, she lets herself being surprised by the symbols that she perceives between the lines that were drawn. In the last stage, she intends to find out a form linking all the flows in order to create an all-containing entity.
Her freeplay performances could be compared to a conversation between body, music, spirits and the environment in which she evolves.
