LOOK CLOSER – Draw to Look

Times: 12pm & 5pm (15 min slots) at Cafe/Bar

‘We only see what we look at. To look is an act of choice.’ – John Berger, Ways of seeing.

In this one-to-one participatory performance, Hannah invites you to join her at a desk specially made for two people to draw each other.

Using a simple drawing exercise, that requires no previous drawing experience, dispelling skill or technique, Hannah creates an occasion to notice the looking that drawing allows and the difference it makes.

Drawing does many things, it records but it also asks us to pay attention. Hannah is interested in the liveness of observational drawing, the effect this occasion has on our relationship to what we choose to draw, and the resulting marks as maps of our looking.

‘Sullivan’s piece is infinitely delicate. It is a snatched moment, a secret shared between you for fifteen minutes. It offers an opportunity to examine, and to focus on nothing but this little bubble of calm.’ – Exeunt.
