Drawing Blue

House Conspiracy, Brisbane 2017

 

Rachael Wellisch and Emma Gardner come together for their first collaborative, performance drawing. Wellisch and Gardner have found through-lines within their practices, each oscillating around the processes of making and the importance of materiality. Drawing Blue is both a response and investigation of materials and the unravelling of contemplative kinetic processes. Through textiles, indigo dyeing, movement and gesture both artists activate space via a reflexive performance that draws on elements of ritual and ceremony.
