Following a line ... she collapses onto the gleaning table
Keywords:Writing, Drawing, Remains, teaching, event, art
This paper, titled ‘Following a line ... she collapses onto the gleaning table’, looks at the relationships between writing and drawing. In particular it looks at a creative-making practice that is based on the gathering of ‘remains’, on the bits and pieces left-over, and brings to mind studio teaching, where the scraps of thinking and noting and sketching are often discarded (and thrown-away). In the paper, drawing and writing are considered to
be ‘graphic events’. Agnes Varda’s film The Gleaners and I is referred to, as are writings by Jacques Derrida, He?le?ne Cixous, Gilles Deleuze, Clarice Lispector, Octavia Paz and Gregory Ulmer. Marcel Duchamp’s Large Glass also plays a part. Fragment-images from an eight-metre long drawing by Michael Geissler (Louis Laybourne Smith School of Architecture & Design), that took its starting point from ‘scraps’ left in a studio, accompany this paper. These non- representational images form a parallel text; the image-text and the writing-text together are a made-work.
