1. Drawing is powerful. Alive with human touch. Records of being in time. Direct engagement with perception, thought and imagination. A medium that can be enacted by anybody capable of making a mark. Free from the laws of the physical world but limited by the constraints of language.
2. Anarchy. Post-Structural Anarchism. Not a single stream of thought but lots of little droplets thinking together and apart. Imagining new realities, new ideas, crushing the basis for existing systems of oppression. Non-hierarchical co-existence. Generous in knowledge, sincerity and feeling. Dismantling language.
Each of the artists demonstrates and enacts anarchic thought through both the form and subject of their drawing works. The variation in work outcomes reflects the particularly broad and fluid notions of both of these concepts.
Drawing and Anarchy is a joint project of works by artists Katherine Botten, Tony Garifalakis, Ander Rennick, Tait Sengstock and Meg Stoios (curator).
