Deadline for submissions: 2 May 2017

The conference aims to investigate and consider the role of drawing as a means to explore and trace our lived experience of the world. This theme relates to a growing area of current research being undertaken by researchers within the School of the Arts, TRACEY School Members Group. The research stems from an interest in what many practitioners/theorists acknowledge as fundamental attributes of drawing: that it is an intimate and immediate process and medium capable of recording the trace of the drawer’s thoughts and bodily movements. The act of drawing is said to reduce the space between the drawer and the drawing, leaving marks on the surface regardless of erasure, subsequently creating a visible trace of both the process of making and the drawer’s thoughts. The conference aims to discuss and debate these widely accepted attributes of drawing to question whether and/or how drawing really can be thought of as phenomenology.

The conference aims to provide a space for discussion, dissemination and the exchange of knowledge and suggests the following as starting points in the discussion, as possible themes, prompts and provocations:

•       What is the relationship between the physicality of drawing and lived experience?
•       When viewing drawings, is it possible to trace the movement of a drawer’s mind/body?
•       Are all drawing processes phenomenological?
•       How can drawing trace the physicality of spaces?
•       What are the limitations of drawing?
•       Is materiality a necessity in drawing the trace of lived experience?

The conveners invite proposals for a 20-minute presentation from practitioners, theorists and practitioner-researchers, which aim to generate debate around the relationship of drawing and phenomenology. In addition to the paper proposals, the organisers particularly encourage proposals for practice-led workshops to explore these ideas.
