Drawing My Body / My Body Drawing
16:00 - 18:00, April 10, 2019
Presented as part of the Drawing Research Residency in partnership with the Paris College of Art.
Instructors: Chloe Briggs and Véronique Devoldère
The event is free - RSVP here
The aim of the workshop is to immerse participants in a sensory exploration of drawing - touching both the confines and limits of their physical space. In the first reclining,‘blind’, physical place participants are encouraged to work from their interior world. When they finally stand, they are made aware of a conscious position where their body is in full control.
The questions that we hope to raise about an embodied experience of drawing are: How much of your body do you use when drawing? What is your particular mind-body dynamic when making a drawing image? What qualities in drawing differ between a ‘blind’, ‘felt’ mark and a consciously directed line? How does sound affect the senses particularly when drawing?
The workshop will take place during the Open Studios event and will feature an Exhibition of works by artists-in-residence.
