Solo exhibition | Blank Projects, Cape Town, South Africa, 2nd-27th October 2008
Materials: mixed media drawing performance with invited artists Ed Young, Barend de Wet, Brendon Bussy and Willem Boschoff
For this solo exhibition four male artists (Ed Young, Barend de Wet, Brendon Bussy and Willem Boschoff) were invited to pose naked for a series of hour-long digital drawing performance in the gallery space. For this exhibition I extended my interest in bringing the physical and the virtual into a dialogue by creating a situation in which the viewer can see the artist and ‘model’ through the window of the gallery space but only gain access to what I am seeing through the mediation of a projection mirroring my laptop workspace. This for me both re-focuses the emphasis onto the drawing process itself and plays with the different perspectives of the public performance and the private moment between the artist and sitter.
