Drawer in a Chronological Manor nods towards all that can be interpreted as fleeting and speculative in drawing by using the structure of an exhibition as a proposition of ongoing ideas, as opposed to an end-point.
Inhabiting RM during closing hours in a sort of co-opted residency, the seven artists will undertake a disjointed collaboration using the distortable theme of drawing. Think exquisite corpse played by invited squatters.
Instead of being in stasis after installation, Drawer in a Chronological Manor will be in a state of flux until the closing event. The result will be an exhibition in three parts, each week constituting a different iteration of ideas around drawing.
For the viewer there is the possibility of following the artists thinking over a series of encounters, positioning art as an ongoing process of observation, reflection and questioning.
