Action/Assemblage: Drawing Together
Sign art poetry is created and delivered entirely in sign language. Researcher Kyra Pollitt will be curating this ‘happening’ in the The Drawing Lab as part of her doctoral research. She will be inviting visitors to join members of HATCH in drawing on paper to record, investigate and respond to the sign artist.
The event will explore the relationship between signing and images, investigating the sign artist’s use of his hands, body and face to create images. What happens to the images once they are created? Do they exist only in space as traces or afterimages? Can they be defined as drawing? Why not get involved in the discussion, make your own drawing, or submit your comment to take an active part in the research.
