This two-part experimental workshop will examine the poetics of Line and Stitch and the ways in which drawing may be used in our everyday practices. We will explore the relationship between drawing and the architecture of the everyday: from the ways a line may be employed as a divider that separates the self from (an)other; to drawing as a form of embodied meaning-making and storytelling across time and space. Reflecting on the inner geography of the pandemic, unpacking placeness and memory through observation of texture and surface, tracing, mark making, frottage, collage, decollage, we will look at the ways the line can become a form of stitching or mending and other kinds of meaning making. We will also examine ways of recording and translating our body, our pulse, breath, blood pressure, gestures and movements in our surroundings as a kind of translation project.

We provide private accommodation, 24/7 private working studio, technical assistance, promotion and communication support, open public presentation of the residency process. Although labs and technique-specific facilities are not available, we will do our best to fulfill your needs, providing logistical support for producing work and events within our network of partners and collaborators. All artists are encouraged and welcome to share the outcome of their residency through talks, performance, open studios or other format o publi presentations.
