E_Deptford-X-e-invite

Fresh from the Folkestone Triennial Fringe, this touring exhibition curated by Birgitta Hosea brings together new work from Foa + Hosea, Carali McCall, Anne Robinson, Sarah Sparkes and Thurle Wright. Using a range of media – drawing, animation, performance to video, light installation, painting and collage, the works engage with living with the constant presence of an absence through the metaphor of waiting for someone to return from sea.

OPEN FROM 12-6pm on: 27th, 28th September and 1-5th October

PRIVATE VIEW: Friday 26th September 6-8pm – if you would like to attend – register for the Private View on Facebook or EventBrite

Drawn Together featured in Iluminace

Illuminace coverDrawn Together were recently featured in Birgitta Hosea’s illustrated essay, ‘Performativity, Post-animation and How I Became a Cartoon Character’, in which she presents the expanded animation elements of the group’s work. This was translated into Czech and included in the animation issue of Iluminace, a Czech film journal. This issue was aimed at challenging conventional notions of animation.

Tracing a dialogue with the line in their individual practice, ‘Drawn Together’ collectively materialise performances incorporating mark-making, animation, sound and video. Drawing through sound, Foá develops a drawn score and contemporary songline, while Hosea creates a digital performance with projected animation. Led by process and repetitive movement, Grisewood and McCall perform a one-hour wall drawing, marking time and challenging endurance.

In line process echo repeat2 the artists’ diverse practices intersect through the shared concerns with how performative drawing can in different ways reveal temporal and spatial understanding on place and space.Their personal approaches allow numerous narratives to be played out in a single location.

MaryClare Foá’s performance drawing is in response to the environment. She investigates how a drawing affects an environment and how that environment might affect that drawing.

Jane Grisewood uses the ‘line’ and the process of ‘drawing’ lines as a way to explore notions of temporality and transience, place and memory. The line is a journey, a between space, always in movement.

Birgitta Hosea investigates animation as performance. Can animation be seen as a type of performance? Where is the site of the performance? Is the process of creating animation performative?

Carali McCall’s artwork traces the relevant essential aspects of process within performance art and sculpture and contributes to locating the specific area she defines as process-led performance art.

Performance Drawing

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.
