Drawing is often considered as a performative art form that requires endurance and physical effort but also a live observational skill. It is therefore readily associated with dance, artistic conferences, activism, music, and more.
Experimental, this exchange in time and in a specific location includes marks indicating the trace of a gesture or thought as visual measures of sometimes ephemeral and quasi imponderable experiences.
During performances and recordings of drawing actions, the drawing tool is reinvented and specific fields extended. Sinuous lines can lead to the written and spoken word, musical interpretation, choreographed gestures, and topographies in the transitory space of art. Lines, sheets, and diagrams dance, play, shout, and think – performing drawing.
