Japanese machine drawing exhibition by Damien Borowik


Reception: Thursday 7th September, 18:00 - 20:00 (book your tickets here: http://bit.ly/2v8tOQo)

”Ma (間) is a Japanese word which can be roughly translated as gap, space, pause or the space between two structural parts. The spatial concept is experienced progressively through intervals of spatial designation. [...]

Ma is not something that is created by compositional elements; it is the thing that takes place in the imagination of the human who experiences these elements. Therefore, ma can be defined as experiential place understood with emphasis on interval.“ - Wikipedia, Aug 2017

In this exhibition, Borowik uses his hand-crafted machines to create both figurative and abstract drawings through the repetition of lines with an emphasis on the space in-between.

Damien Borowik is a visual artist who investigates the art of making as aesthetics. Using either analog or digital processes, the artist develops his own creative tools and explores their mark-making abilities.
