Drawing (v.) Drawings (n.)

An exhibition by Emily Mohr

Drawing (v.) Drawings (n.)

Drawing (v.) Drawings (n.) is the performance of a series of nine ‘as-built drawings’ exhibited as they are drawn in the Banvard Gallery. Neither digitally fabricated nor hand-crafted, the exhibition employs a series of custom-built CNC drawing robots to draw nine drawings framed perspectivally and literally by nine frames. Composed of recompositions of site-specific ornament, the framed drawings are suspended from three structural members mismatched from the gallery’s three existing structural channels to produce a series of collaged views of the collaged frames.
