Performance Now was a two-day event dedicated only to performances. By bringing my circle drawing performances I pushed the process of drawing outside of paper which I always used and decided to create some site specific interventions with charcoal. The three charcoal circles drawn on the gallery floor where left as traces of my movements in the space for the two days of the exhibition.
Carrying out these performances directly on the gallery floor was a way to question the boundaries between drawing, sculpture and installation. The circles look both physically present and static, almost as a sculpture would be in a gallery space. This is due to the strong confident gestures I use when carrying these drawing out. On the other hand, the actual features of the charcoal dust make the drawings look incredibly precarious and ephemeral. This is a fascinating contrast which characterises my practice a lot, this idea of an object or an artwork having physical and conceptual paradox.
