Memories, like a dance, are composed of fleeting moments. The comparison is apropos for new these works by collaborative duo, for whom movement — specifically dance — plays an integral role. Their latest crop of photographs once again features narratives inspired by both feelings and reactions to the surrounding environment, while still allowing room for viewers to project themselves.
The Alps are to the Alponaut what the Cosmos is to the Cosmonaut

Q. Tell us about the process behind your shared practice and this new body of work specifically?
A. There’s no rules...
Be it two or three dimensional, descriptive, implied or abstract, the use of form, line and shape go beyond mere geometry.
Framing & Mounting
Our frames are produced from the best quality wood, primarily from Italy. Each is custom cut and assembled by hand to fit your art. Hanging hardware included!
THIN GALLERY FRAME
This modern profile was designed for artists and photographers. Narrow on the front and deep on the sides, our slim mouldings provide a clean, sharp frame for your art, and allows all focus to be on your gorgeous work.
3/4" wide; 1 1/8" deep
UV - PROTECTIVE ACRYLIC
Our acrylic is more expensive than glass, but we use it because it’s clearer, far more impact resistant, and protects your art against UV rays. Framing-grade acrylic has become a new standard in framing because of its “clear” benefits.
THE FULL BLEED
Works are framed flush with the edge of your print without a mat. Request border modifications and spacers, which keep the work from touching the glass.
Adds a white core mat with a bevel cut opening to the edge of your print. If your work has a signature or edition numbering, we will automatically mat around it unless otherwise specified.
We use 4-ply, conservation-grade, acid-free mat board. We match whites and off-whites to your exact piece. Acid-free materials protect your art from yellowing or becoming brittle.
Floating a piece allows for a full view of the face and sides of the artwork. Floating is recommended for original drawings and paintings or any piece produced on specially trimmed paper.
The Heidies is a collaboration between photographer Pascaline Dargant and artist and dancer Caroline Denervaud. Conceived in Paris during an impromptu photoshoot in 2014, Dargant began photographing Denervaud rehearsing choreography, giving rise to a new artistic practice for the pair. Their work has been featured in Elle, Bonne Maison and in galleries across the US and Europe.
