SLIDESHOW: THE MILKY WAY AND OTHER DRAWINGS
Most of these drawings were made as part of the collaborative project MilkyWayYouWillHearMeCall, with the photographer Tom Rodgers and the curator Judit Bodor. The botanical specimens used in these drawings are picked from sites where the bodies of women killed by Peter Sutcliffe (the ‘Yorkshire Ripper’) were found, and the labour of drawing performs an act of remembrance and mourning. A limited edition archive publications of the text and image outcomes are available as publications.
THOUGHTS ON DRAWING PROCESS
Drawing is endurance in a way that other work is not. Drawings are troublesome, and like me, are shy of the camera. It is when I am drawing that I am most embedded in the relations between the work and my problematic physical self.
I don’t know what to do with drawings any more, unwieldy monsters that refuse to be photographed and are too big for frames.
