The Artist will be drawing live with water-based markers on paper and the final drawn image will be 800x400cm.
The audience is invited to catch the exhibition and witness the performance at any point durning the 4 hour performance.
“As with any committed artist every one of my actions has meaning. To me what is left behind is irreplaceable. Who knows if I can or will be here to create it again."
The show is dedicated to the recorded memories and mark making of Ram's performances since arriving in the UK. Ram’s performances are full of physical repetitions and laborious rhythms that reflect where his life is going, what he is doing and how best to deal with decisions that lie before him. In this way his art is a visual representation of the self examination process that we all go through in our own lives. After the struggle is over there is a relic left behind. Theses remnants are precious and become new art pieces in their own right, allowing the viewer to marvel in the detail of the original gestures made in each performances.
About the Artist:
Ram Samocha is an Israeli-born artist, who presently resides in Brighton, UK; his work draws from the locale and the location of its creation. As an immigrant artist, Samocha focuses on the issues of personal and global transformation by combining traditional drawing skills with video, animation, and performance.
Drawing is a seminal element in Samocha’s practice as it allows him to work with very basic media. Samocha often works on temporary surfaces and uses a personal artistic language that speaks via abstraction and the physical process of repetitive line-based actions.
Ram Samocha is a studio artist at [Performance Space], London. His work has been included in various museum exhibitions and private collections that have been shown in the UK, Israel, Italy, The Netherlands, Germany, Mexico, the United States and Canada.
