In her realisation of Umberto Eco’s essay ‘On the Impossibility of Drawing a Map of the Empire on a Scale of 1 to 1’, Sara Morawetz explores the boundaries that exist between the real and its representation, examining the inherent complexities and logistical absurdities of working at a life-size scale.

Zoe Brooks’ work encompasses a broad range of media including painting, drawing, video and performance.

Running - 2nd March - 18th March 2017

Renuka's latest work is a series of drawings in time. It involves having slowed the drawing process excessively and then having sped those interrupted gestures right up in sequence. This produces some pretty awkward rhythms than might make a musician cringe.
