DRAW TO PERFORM3 – Two Day International Symposium for Drawing Performance

Sat& Sun, 30-31 July 10am-10pm at the Crows Nest Gallery near Portobello Market, London.

Drawing performance artists from the UK and around the world are performing live at Draw to Perform’s third annual symposium on Saturday & Sunday, 30-31 July 10am-10pm at the Crows Nest Gallery, near Portobello Market, London.

Draw to Perform is an international community for drawing performance, which is a stream of performance art in which artists create their artwork in front of a live audience. This stirring art form combines drawing, theatre, dance, and music into a vibrant and dynamic act.

The symposium is an exciting opportunity for the public to experience and celebrate the unique discipline of live drawing performance. Artist and curator Ram Samocha has gathered a stimulating selection of drawing performance artists from the UK and abroad to perform over two exciting days of live performances, video screening, discussion panel and workshops.

Day One features multiple short and long live performances, running simultaneously over 12 hours in four spaces of the gallery. This time the focus will be on COLLABORATIONS (between two or more artists, between artists and the viewers or between different art disciplines). The audience will be free to drop in throughout the day, walk around the different acts, observe and participate in some. Throughout the day there will also be lectures, video screening, and a discussion panel with participating artists.

Day Two includes bookable workshops provided by international and local artists. The workshops provide the opportunity to experience the art form first hand, work with and be tutored by some of the leading artists in their field.

Participants will draw live, share and discuss their outcomes and ideas. The workshops will explore drawing as performance and strategies for forming a dialog between drawing, process and performance. Drawing materials will be provided for all workshops.

DAY2 – Drawing Performance Workshops: Sunday, July 31 2016, 10am-10pm

Day Two includes bookable workshops provided by international and local artists. The workshops provide the opportunity to experience the art form first hand, work with and be tutored by some of the leading artists in their field.
Participants will draw live, share and discuss their outcomes and ideas. The workshops will explore drawing as performance and strategies for forming a dialog between drawing, process and performance. Drawing materials will be provided for all workshops.

Workshop 1 (10:00-12:00) with Ram Samocha (Israel/UK)

In this workshop, Draw to Perform curator Ram Samocha will be focusing on the process of drawing from white to black and from black to color; from abstraction to figurative, and from scribble to writing.

Workshop 2 (13:00-14:30) with Saranjit Birdi (UK)

Trained as an architect and dancer, Saranjit Birdi’s drawing practice explores the instrumentation of the whole body as an unfolding. This workshop will focus on physical limitations and boundaries: drawing with different parts of our anatomy, such as a foot or an elbow.

Workshop 3 (15:00-17:00) with Vera Martins (Brazil)

Brazilian artist Vera Martins has developed a unique drawing technique where she draws on large surfaces with a brush-whip made out of canvas strings. Her workshops are energetic, allow for interactive participation and appeal to all ages.

Workshop 4 (16:00-18:00) with Lezli Rubin-Kunda (Canada/Israel)

Urban Drawing Interventions – How can we use drawing and marking to interact with the urban environment? In this workshop, we will discuss the possibilities for engaging with our immediate surroundings and the uses of drawing, beyond or apart from graffiti, in creating site-specific works. We will explore the neighborhood of Crows Nest Gallery, find marking materials and surfaces to work with and gathering ideas. We will then create temporary site-specific drawing works, individually, in collaboration with each other or in participation with locals.

Workshop 5 (17:30-19:00) with Greig Burgoyne (UK)

Through accumulation, duration and endurance our gestures make spaces. In this workshop we will explore the role of mark-making as a means to both generate and test the limits of what ‘our space’ may be. Combining a logic verging on absurd, the making of our activated space may be at odds with others who will be seeking to do the same. Can we negotiate or will we compete?

Workshop 6 (19:30-21:30) with Emma Falt (Finland)

The workshop is a journey through loneliness. Groups will create collaborative drawings by using Ink, brushes and sticks, leaving traces of their movement and sounds on paper. These acts of drawing propose ways to study contact with others and on self. The workshop ponders the limits of ones physical body. It explores the space between energy and emotion, where the words have disappearedor are not yet born.
