Cyclus Copenhagen combines dance photography and the works of Auguste Rodin. I enter Rodin’s universe and through my photographic collages capture the dance in the stone.
Cyclus Copenhagen 1
Photography, 40 × 50 cm
Cyclus Copenhagen combines dance photography and the works of Auguste Rodin. People say that a sculpture is a dance that has turned into stone. In no other sculptures is dance as present as in artist Auguste Rodin’s works. His stone, clay and bronze sculptures contain so many movements and emotions, which is what I try to portray via a number of dancers from The Royal Danish Ballet in the art project Cyclus Copenhagen. I enter Rodin’s universe and through my photographic collages capture the dance in the stone.

Ingrid Bugge is known for working with topics that she feels deeply connected with. This is very prevalent in all her artistic endeavours to date.
The Essence of Ballet was the beginning of her international artistic journey and was recognized world wide for its “haunting beauty.” It was covered on BBC, CNN, The Guardian, Gulf News and many more outlets. The exhibition received critical acclaim and it inspired Ingrid to further her love of ballet and art by creating the dance photo art project, Cyclus Perm. This was a creative collaboration between Ingrid Bugge, the Perm Opera Ballet and the Perm State Art Gallery.
Ingrid uses her camera as a research tool. Since 2006 she has been testing the boundaries of intimacy and human knowledge, of nature and of emotion. As a fine art photographer, Ingrid Bugge approaches the philosophical, the emotional and the archetypal world.
“I paint with my camera with special techniques.The renaissance painters’ techniques inspire my work. I focus on the classic structure of background, middle ground and main subject. Their ability to manipulate light and darkness as well as their passion for dense expression amazes me.”
Ingrid creates her art through analog and digital photography, after that she goes through a thorough editing process that includes drawing and painting.
