The Drawing of Bodies and Things — Exhibition

Posted in Drawing, Exhibitions, Participatory Drawing, woodwork by robbiekarmel on November 3, 2014

The Drawing of Bodies and Things opened last week, the show went really well, I’ve presented several talks to visitors and undergraduate groups and everyone has been very receptive and engaged in great conversations about drawing.

Several people joined me in performative participatory drawings on the opening night, a big thanks to Kyla Cassells, Richard Carroll, and Eliza Vince.

A big thanks to everyone who came to the opening and who has visited the show, the exhibition will be up until the 8th of November, Wednesday til Saturday at Kudos Gallery, Paddington.

Participatory Drawing in Melbourne

Posted in Drawing, Participatory Drawing by robbiekarmel on May 7, 2014

Over the weekend I travelled down to Melbourne to present my work at N/A Studios. I did a series of participatory drawing exercises with people, presenting some methods I’d used previously as well as experimenting with some new configurations.

I’ll be presenting the project again in Canberra in a few weeks, in Newcastle early October, and at my graduate exhibition in Sydney late October.

Thanks to everyone who came along and had a go! and a massive thanks to Sarah Kaur, George Rose, and NA Studios for inviting me down and hosting me, it was a fantastic weekend!

(sorry about the quality of the photos of the drawing, didn’t have ideal lighting conditions…)

You Are Here Paricipatory Drawings

Posted in Drawing, Participatory Drawing by robbiekarmel on March 24, 2014

Over the last two weekends I have been drawing in Canberra as a part of the You Are Here festival, I’ve built a table to facilitate my drawing experiments and have been working with people to make drawings.

A very special thanks you the You Are Here folks for having me, and to everyone that participated in the work.

I’ll be continuing to work with people and will be looking for people to draw with in Canberra and Sydney over the coming months.

Performance and Tactility

Tactile participatory drawing with my brother Josh Griffiths, this is the process that was used to make the drawings below.  It’s been a really interesting series of works, and is more about the tactile and proprioceptive experience of the participant than the drawings produced. So far I’ve done the drawing exercise with other artists, musicians, dancers, and people with no drawing experience at all. I’m always looking for people to draw with so if you’re interested in participating contact me and we’ll see if we can set something up.

A portion of a sustained drawing performance I did at Canberra Museum and Gallery for Music By Cavelight, itself a part of the You Are Here arts festival. The event went from 10pm through til 8am. The sounds are a snippet of a continuous tag team and collaboration between Reuben Ingall, Paul Heslin, Metatone Transfer, Nickamc, Chris Finnigan, and Shoeb Ahmad.
