*8 Possibilities of making drawing **is a project that responds to the
dynamics of Drawing Spaces by presenting a series of public workshops
coordinated by a variety of experts in the field of drawing. These workshops
will take place during opening hours – from Wednesday to Saturday, from 19h
to 23h – following the ‘open residence’ model. This will give the
opportunity to the public to daily visit and accompany the development of
these experimental sessions around drawing.*
*Drawing an action, drawing an installation*
*Wednesday, 15 September, from 19h to 23h*
I invite the participants to imagine a [mental] map with which they can
identify themselves. Using tape we will mark on the wall and/or floor of the
space the limits-of-a-territory-of-action. The space will be our support for
intervention to draw/map out. We move ourselves within it, drawing paths and
plans. We may simultaneously sketch on the wall and/or paper. During this
process we will be producing a performative processual action which will
leave its traces on the space.
