DRAWING ROOM
proposal for the exhibition “New Magical Realism”
2019
site-specific installation
flag 3×5 m, fan
The Minories Galleries, Colchester, England

One of the exhibition/working spaces of The Minories Galleries calls Drawing Room. This space has a strong character due to the very contrast elements of the roof structure. The clear graphics and rhythm of the wooden beams are marking the rise of the roof and repeating this going up. The appearance of this space and its title are provoked me to fill its interior with a moving line.
The line is placed on the flag. I call this flag Black-White-Black and it is a physical representation of important video element I am working with. My obsession with this element, which I used in the number of site-specific installations, led to desire to bring this dynamic structure to the symbol. Flag is a symbol, but also an object, a complex phenomenon which is alive while it moves.
Placing the flag with a white line in the DRAWING ROOM space, I add another one moving line that interacts with the already formed line structure and contrasts it. It is about a constant making – continuation of a drawing, about continuous process of (de-) formation of space.
