The process as a starting and ending point. [An exploration of] drawing through process
During this presentation, Jorge Silva Marques will aim to discuss two simple ideas: ‘(1) that there is a kind of drawing which occurs in a close relationship with its process and that reveals itself simultaneously to this process; (2) that this kind of drawing occurs from “non focused processes” (processes that do not focus objectively and exclusively on the practice of perceptive drawing).’ In order to develop this line of enquiry Jorge Silva Marques will argue that it is necessary to ‘look for the existence of symptoms (Goodman) in drawing that provide evidences or properties of its process.’
