Draw | Breath | Animal

Exhibition


Bartram, Angela and Deigaard, Lee 2021. Draw | Breath | Animal.
CreatorsBartram, Angela and Deigaard, Lee
Description

The animal and being animal is a proposition and position that invites observational and critical debate. To observe the non-human animal is too often tense and politicised; to take on an understated what-it-is-to-be-animal is a sensitised and sensitive means to understand differing perspectives.

Artists Lee Deigaard (USA) and Angela Bartram (UK) critically approach the animal as the animal. Using diverse methods and materials and curious to potentialities, they explore working as humans from an animal-centric perspective. They bring sensitivities to their handling of the animal as both artistic subject and collaborator, of behaving as animal, in order to observe and engage with empathy and openness to the unexpected, to animal insight and revelation. Iterative long term projects in drawing and printmaking foreground proximity and proprioceptive, nearly devotional studio and caretaking practices centering on respiration and companionate movement within a global pandemic. This exhibition explores the socialised and familiar in close observation, directly and indirectly, in their individual yet companion practices and additionally features the artists in conversation and active collaboration on site in the gallery.
The exhibition was accompanied by a Commmunitas Lecture in the gallery on Thursday 18th November 2021.
Bartram‘s participation was supported through a Distinguished Visiting Professorship at Utah State University.
