Erasure brings together a body of work from the last three years that addresses the erasure of women’s voices in society and visualises the invisibility of labour. The exhibition is named after my short film in which dirt, ink, bleach and other cleaning products are animated. It includes sequential drawings, performance and animated installation. Here are some of the plans that I have done in Sketchup..

Information in Korean on Art & Tok

I have many people to thank – Heashin Kwak and Soo Yeon Kim from Hanmi Gallery have done so much to make this happen; Sandra Nutmeg, Anne Pietsch and Maryclare Foa have given me so much support; very grateful to Calum F. Kerr for allowing me to share his studio; thanks to Lilly Husbands for writing the catalogue essay; a number of curators included pieces from this series in group shows or screenings which allowed me to develop the ideas further – Vanya Balogh, Tianran Duan, Rebecca Feiner, Lu Tingting, Gerben Schermer, Zhang Xiaotao; I was also supported by going on a number of residencies that enabled me space to progress at a time when I had no studio thanks to Susan Allen, Regine Bartsch, Rose Bond and Rekha Sameer; and finally I am so thankful to my employer, the University for the Creative Arts, for supporting the exhibition catalogue and my trip to Korea.

Dialogues on Performance II: Drawing Performance – Performance Drawing

2-4pm, Weds 20th March, Central Saint Martins, London

As part of the ‘Making Knowledge’ exhibition at Central Saint Martins, which presents practice-based research by staff, the second ‘Dialogues on Performance’ event is on the theme of performance drawing. Five speakers from a range of disciplines will discuss very different types of work that they have created which explore varied connections between drawing and performance. Steve Roberts, a traditional animator who specialises in animating in pencil, will talk about how his animation work is informed by acting techniques. Artist, Robert Luzar, will present conceptual work in which the body in motion imprints and enacts erasure. Rebecca Ross will show work that she does with students to program robots that make drawings in motion. Jenny Hayton and Graham West will show installation work in which architectural drawings are rendered through embroidery inspired by techniques from costume design. Maryclare Foa will present performance drawings created through sound.
