Draw to Perform
London, December 2013
Curated by Ram Samocha
In this lecture a live and a virtual speaker performed, in conversation with each other and the audience, to open up the concept of performance drawing: expanding, gathering, attracting and amassing interdisciplinary and collaborative perspectives, that go beyond notions of paper, the permanent mark and the individual markmaker.
Maryclare Foa demonstrated, depicted and described a poetics of performance drawing while being virtually assisted, contradicted, instructed and animated by Birgitta Hosea, one of her collaborators in Performance Drawing Collective projects. Finally, the audience followed instructions given by the speakers to create a collective performance drawing.
