Capital Revisited Drawings
2013 IDEAS CITY Festival, Drawing Centre, New York
Capital Revisited is commissioned by The Drawing Center in collaboration with the New Museum, ideas city project. The project was initiated by David Thorp. In 1995 I made a work at the British Museum called Capital. In New York 2013, for ideas city I revisited this work in a series of fragments focused on buildings in the East Village, just off the Bowery. The project lasted twenty three days and began with an intensive period of drawing in my temporary studio in the basement of LaMaMa. The work is a 54 ft x 38 ft drawing made in mixed media, broken and assembled in sections and relocated in five locations around the Bowery area of New York. using wooden fences, outside walls and the windows of a local restaurant. Part two of the project is an exhibition called Document, that opens on the 18th June - 18 August at the Drawing Center NY.
The project was curated by Nova Benway and Aimee Good with studio assistants Rebecca Dearlove, Gabriella Perez, Blake Ruehrwein, Kate Smith, and students Joen Kim, ShinYeon Moon, The installation team were Keith Schweitzer and Jason Patrick Voegele.
This is a selected list of drawings that were made in the Bowery Studio in New York in April / May 2013. The works were returned to London and catalogued there.
