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 environment, 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.

Testing our Limits – Workshop with Greig Burgoyne

Draw to Perform3, International symposium for drawing performance. Day 2, 31/07/16, The Crows Nest Gallery, London. Photos by Loredana Denicola.

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?

On Loneliness and Contact – Workshop with Emma Fält

Draw to Perform3, International symposium for drawing performance. Day 2, 31/07/16, The Crows Nest Gallery, London. Photos by Loredana Denicola. Supported by Frame Finland and Tauten edistämiskeskus.

In this workshop 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.
