Margaret Roberts' Wall-Drawing in Articulate Backroom opens Friday 30 August 6-8pm


Open 11am - 5pm Friday - Sunday, 31 August - 8 September

On one wall, I am drawing the temporary wall in Articulate's backroom at the same scale, but vertical instead of horizontal, thinking that the wall and its drawing have the potential to hook onto each other in a sort of hug where the short length of each provides support to the long part of the other. I was thinking partly of Blinky Pallermo's 1971 mural painting on two walls facing each other, in which the walls strain to stay separate and not collapse into one painting as they seem to want to do. It is also a continuation of an interest in making gallery walls more visible by converting them into sculptures. Later on I also marked out the ceiling's inset lights onto the floor, and renamed the work Room-Drawing.
