Tracing Out

In this series M.Lohrum reflects upon how the dichotomies of presence/absence and trace/tracker operate in performative drawing.  The artist starts by using a square format of 1.5m x1.5m, where her body comfortably fits in. She then realises a perfomative drawing by tracing her repetitive movements to investigate to what extent the position and movements on her body can be read in the finished drawing with no need for the audience to witness the performance itself. Close-up and process pictures of this series can be found here.
