Save Event: Modified Drawings

I've seen this

People who have saved this event:


This exhibition brings together a collection of (modified) compositions taken from a project by the artist John Vincent Stevenson in 2004, originally designed to investigate ideas that might confront spatial representation within drawings.


They could be considered architectural in that they involve space and the relationship between spaces and structure, but have an uncertain dialogue with the issue of scale. The strict rules of technical drawing are set aside, as the aim with these studies is the tension between positive and negative; real or implied physical boundaries.

As a method of construction, the works are dissected and reassembled with other compositions, and form a new alliance with existing drawings.

The ambiguity of solid and empty space encourage that they be read as a ‘plan’ or ‘section’, or even a fusion of both. Lines and marks that enter a zone outside of the drawing, direct and change the varying limits of the work, rejecting the conventional rectangle of paper, altering the compositions anatomy. This has in turn transferred the drawing to the realm of ‘object’.
