Drawing Room

CoCA - Centre of Contemporary Art Toi Moroki

Architectural drawing is primarily seen as producing and documenting future buildings. These drawings picture miniature versions of as-yet-unbuilt spaces, simulations of rooms that will be inhabited in the future.

Drawing Room, by Aaron Paterson, Sarosh Mulla and Marian Macken, presents an alternative kind of architectural drawing. It explores drawing in space, rather than of spaces, operating at both full-scale and scaleless. In doing this, the site of architectural drawing shifts from the studio workplace to the gallery. Here, bodies and drawings intersect.

Drawing Room explores architecture as a consequence of its media in the post-digital realm in which the novelty of digital drawing has been superseded by the creative potential found in diverse methods of drawing – spanning the analogue to the virtual. Drawing Room suggests speculative drawing practices that sit beside architectural professional practice, yet feed into it, highlighting the rapidly changing way architects draw and visualise their designs.

As part of Drawing Room, the artists present a parallel online exhibition that you can visit with your friends – Edge of Shadow.
