Over a career spanning more than three decades, Shelley Lasica's practice has placed the creative and processional machinations of dance and choreography at centre stage. Skirting histories of visual, spatial and performance art as closely as she has embraced dance and choreography, the Melbourne artist's propositions test the limits of the mediums in which they operate, forever expanding contexts and posing questions of just what dance is and what it can be as art. Lasica's debut book is at once organised and amorphous, with image sequences fracturing and folding in on themselves amidst a measured, cumulative flow of gestures, people, movements, and architectures.
