Yeo Workshop at Gillman Barracks will present “A Drawing Show” from August 1st.


A Drawing Show is an attempt to provide a concise take on the medium in Southeast Asia today, a view of the realities and possibilities of drawing. From pencil-on-paper works, to structural interventions, to conceptual approaches to mark-making, we witness a progressive shift away from the object to the body, from an emphasis on the visual complex to the gestural force that animates it.The opening night boasts a two-man performance by Wong and Widjaja, My drawing is better than your drawing, which examines the disjunctures between two forms of inscriptional practice: between ephemerality and permanence, paper and skin, pencil and ink.
