LONDON / BERLIN: Anschlüssel

Exhibition: Anschlüssel at Fruehsorge Contemporary Drawings
(Heidestr. 46 – 52 10557 Berlin).
Dates: 9th September – 29th October 2011
Opening Hours: Tuesday-Saturday 11 am-6 pm


This survey curated by  Andrew Hewish of the Centre for Recent Drawing (C4RD) London, seeks to present the vibrancy and depth of drawing production in London and Berlin. From recent graduates to the well established, these artists operate from within an understanding of the complexities of drawing values, of Anschlussel: speculative, connective, unorthodox – unlocking links wherever a line might lead. The exhibition will transfer to Centre for Recent Drawing, London, in 2012.

Included in this exhibition are Maryclare Foa’s works – Drawing Your Desire (2006) and Line Down Manhattan (2003).

Tracey: online journal for contemporary drawing research

The latest issue of Tracey, the online journal for drawing research is now live. This issue is on Fragmentation and features a collaborative article on Drawn Together’s recent residency and performance at the Centre for Drawing Project Space in Wimbledon:

Drawn Together – Collaborative Performance.

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.

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.

Drawn Together… an introduction

Images from Drawn Together

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.
