6 Feet

Made during the Covid 19 global pandemic and based on the idea of social distancing, ‘6 Feet’ is a participative performative drawing that aims to question the notion of 'authorship' and the individualistic attitude that has a negative impact in societies, by emphasising collectivity and collaboration. Ten participants created a collaborative drawing by following these rules:

- Draw as far as you can reach.

- Drive the people next to you, but also let them drive you.


The participants’ wrists were joined with a wooden stick, which emphasises the 6ft distance between them but also caused that, like in society, the movements and decisions of each of them affected the performance of all the others.

This work has been shortlisted for the Trinity Buoy Wharf Drawing Prize 2022 and the ING Discerning Eye Exhibition 2021.
