MaryClare Foá, Jane Grisewood, Birgitta Hosea and Carali McCall are collaborating as ‘Drawn Together’ on projects to address the relationship to body and presence, time and space through performance drawing.
Tracing a dialogue with the line in their individual practice, they collectively materialise performances incorporating mark-making, animation, sound and video. In their first collaboration, line process echo repeat, Foá, drawing through sound, developed a drawn score and contemporary songline, while Hosea created an interactive digital performance with projected animation. Led by process and repetitive movement, Grisewood and McCall performed a one-hour wall drawing, marking time and challenging endurance.
The artists’ diverse practices intersect through the shared concerns with how performative drawing can in different ways reveal temporal and spatial understanding of place and space. Their personal approaches allow numerous narratives to be played out in a single location.
