Abstract

Drawing can be explained in at least two ways: exemplifying trace, an inherent capacity or collection of characteristics in an individual (Nancy 2013) e.g. Rembrandt's drawing versus Van Gogh's drawing, the drawing of a particular thing in the world by a particular individual; or as an open-ended, improvisatory movement through the world that marks a line (Ingold, 2011). This may be physical, metaphysical, virtual or real. This participatory artlab set out to create a collision between these different approaches to drawing and to use this experience to open a debate about drawing and anthropology. The 90 minute workshop offered participants points of access into different aspects of drawing which include: collaborative, ephemeral, imagistic and relational. It also opened into a discussion on the implications of these experiences for an ontology of creativity and for the practices of art/anthropology.
