“The premise of our collaborative residency is that we would not be present at the same time in the gallery space. This working strategy brings the benefit of an inbuilt dialogue and testing of drawing and performance artistic processes. The gallery space becomes a speculative site for contingent making and activities, where each artist negotiates its intervention by responding to what the other has left or not in the space. In the form of markmaking, walking, combined with repetition, accumulation and endurance, the resulting drawing, installation, film and/or sound works aim to debate how drawing can explore systems of space and thinking. By this we mean the forces of energy and 'becoming' brought into the space in the making of the work and those energies and forces that exist already in and outside of the context and site together. The notion of the rhizome is a useful means to test out drawing as perfomative practice as it allows us to open up a non-hierarchical way of thinking and responding where there are multiple entry and exit points of interpretation and representation, be it language, gesture, architectural elements and rule based markmaking; its ordering may be random, instinctual or considered. The resulting work we see as propositions only completed or brought into being as a result of the context it is in. The culminating exhibition aims to reconceptualise the body/site relation through performative actions that take the gallery space beyond a condition of stasis to one of translation and flux, a site of experience rather than location; extending the Bergsonian sense of the ‘not yet’ to a becoming of multiplictiy, endurance and duration.” GB + RE The exhibition can be viewed at the reception (all welcome) on the Wednesday 4 June 6-8pm or from 4 - 12 June during opening times 1 - 6pm Thursday - Saturday, at 2 - 4 Highbury Station Road, Highbury Islington N1 1SB, London.
