2-4pm, Weds 20th March, Central Saint Martins, London
As part of the ‘Making Knowledge’ exhibition at Central Saint Martins, which presents practice-based research by staff, Birgitta Hosea has curated one of a series of ‘Dialogues on Performance’ events on the theme of performance drawing. Five speakers from a range of disciplines will discuss very different types of work that they have created, which explore varied connections between drawing and performance. Steve Roberts, a traditional animator who specialises in animating in pencil, will talk about how his animation work is informed by acting techniques. Artist, Robert Luzar, will present conceptual work in which the body in motion imprints and enacts erasure. Rebecca Ross will show work that she does with students to program robots that make drawings in motion. Jenny Hayton and Graham West will show installation work in which architectural drawings are rendered through embroidery inspired by techniques from costume design. Maryclare Foa will present performance drawings created through sound.
