Saturday 23 Nov – Schedule:

Workshop 1 (11:00-13:00) with Bettina Fung

Expanded Drawing – This workshop expands on what the drawn line could be and is led by Bettina Fung, sharing aspects of her performance drawing practice. Thinking about the relationship between drawing and movement and playing with the notion if a line is a point in motion then a person moving through space is like drawing in air, this workshop involves a variety of drawing approaches from mapping movements, automatic drawing, cut-up to monotyping.

London based artist Bettina Fung | 馮允珊’s practice involves the performative aspects of drawing, where she draws live at exhibitions, sharing her process and allowing her work to unfold overtime. She creates two dimensional, performative and site specific works. Themes of ritual, futility, purposelessness and notions of belonging, productivity and progress are subjects of interest. Bettina has exhibited nationally and abroad, with work shown in France, Canada, Hong Kong and Taiwan.




Workshop 2 (14:00-16:00) with Nelly Lewis

Life Line – A movement and drawing workshop inspired by the participants’ autobiography; the workshop integrates body, matter and spirit; allows you to dive into your existence and let your creativity go wild. Discover how your own life can be a source for artistic expression. During the workshop you will have the opportunity to reflect and create your unique lifeline performance/dance drawing, all from an intuitive, spontaneous, and authentic state of mind.
