Drawing Performance

Darkness Folding Unfolding (2016)

Performance drawing.

Performed at the opening night of C O L O U R on 23 September 2016, Studio 102, Plymouth, UK (Part of the Plymouth Art Weekender).

Dur: 20mins

This piece proposed to seek the colours hidden in darkness.

The drawing was created by folding. A black piece of paper, the same length as the height of the artist, was placed on the floor. The artist wrapped herself in the paper and eventually scrunched it up into a ball as small as possible. As she unfolded the paper, colour surfaced. The unfolded paper was hung on the wall.
