Performing Drawology 15 January - 12 Febuary 2016


Starting on 15th January 2016 the Bonington gallery will be traced back to an open white space:

a surface on which to draw and experience drawing.

Over the course of one month artists are invited to spend a period of time in the Gallery creating lines, marks and tones that explore and respond to the space through a variety of drawing processes. The exhibition will celebrate the expanded field of contemporary drawing and will include: paper, performance, moving image, installation, projections and three-dimensional drawing.

Vantage points will be made available in the Gallery throughout the exhibition to encourage visitors to witness and engage with the work as it continuously unfolds and takes form.

The artists welcome responses from the public and have designated specific discussion events when visitors are invited to meet the artists and to pose any questions they might have about the work taking place.

For the first week of the exhibition Deborah Harty and Phil Sawdon (humhyphenhum) have been working within the empty gallery, adapting to the space, the video recording of the event and the process of 'drawing'. Progress in the gallery can be viewed on the exhibition blog.
