The Winter Drawings

Performance/ drawing/ sculpture/ photographs
Montreal, 2005


As part of a community intervention project organized by the Saidye Bronfman Centre, I worked at several neighbourhood schools directing the students to enact various conceptual instructions for sketchbook projects.

The resulting works such as The Winter Drawings – where students ripped drawing paper into small pieces and tossed them into the air like snow, and The Kilometre Drawings – where students cut and taped strips of drawing paper to form a ball consisting of one continuous kilometre; manifested themselves in various performances and sculptures. The actions and objects were finally documented and exhibited as a comprehensive series of large framed photo-text works.

The work was enacted at Marymount Academy and Lower Canada College in Montreal in 2005.
