Jeanne-Salomé Rochat

jeannesalomérochat
Jeanne-Salomé Rochat is a Swiss artist and choreographer based in Switzerland. Blowing up her early professional dance career at Ballet Béjart's with a sports accident, she decides to study fine arts at Ecal (Ecole cantonale d'art de Lausanne), expanding her practice of live performance through choreography and cross-disciplinary collaborations. After that, she carries on her researches in curatorial research within the European Art Ensemble program. Her works, which she calls "situations" mostly involve writing and filming, and touch upon the interpretation of systems of representation and misrepresentation. Still applying a careful and integrated approach to movement, her pieces combine the more performative dimension of images with compositional detail and concern for analyzing ways and means of representation that gain motivation from narcissistic, voyeuristic and fetishistic mechanisms.

Besides, as a founding member of Sang Bleu Editeurs, a publishing house and curatorial collective, her production stands out as a series of notes taken during the differents layers of her collaboration with visual and media production and the critical training processes that its evolution still requires within society. She considers that in a world that has been physically and corporally over-explored, or surveyed, other facts can today become the subjects of cognitive experiences.
