As our second feature of experimental filmmaker Jodie Mack (born 1983; London, UK) is Point de Gaze (2012). A fabric flicker film titled after a gauze-like Belgian lace, Point de Gaze continues Mack’s exploration of intricate illusion and optical arrest through her use of composition and rhythm.

Read our Bookstore Manager Genevieve Wollenbeck on Henri Michaux: Emergences/Resurgences our Drawing Papers 14. 

"Published for the first time in English to accompany the major solo exhibition, Untitled Passages by Henri Michaux (2000), Emergences/Resurgences, like many of The Drawing Center’s publications, is an object in its own right, with lasting relevance to artists, writers, and readers today. The synthesis of text and art in Michaux’s contribution to Sentiers resonates profoundly as equal parts soliloquy, poetry, confession, and treatise.”

In conjunction with the opening of Len Lye: Motion Sketch, The Drawing Center’s online gallery is featuring the work of experimental filmmaker Jodie Mack (born 1983; London, UK). In A Joy, Mack employs direct animation–a technique by which the filmmaker draws directly on the film–to explore the relationship between graphic cinema and storytelling and the tension between form and meaning.

Last September The Drawing Center hosted the world premiere of NOTATIONOTATIONS, a first-time collaboration between renowned, multimedia artist Susan Hefuna (b. Germany, 1962) and contemporary choreographer Luca Veggetti (b. Italy, 1963). NOTATIONOTATIONS posited the idea that if a line is the trace of a point in motion, then the human body moving through the space of the observed world is also a drawing.

Susan Hefuna’s drawings made for The Drawing Center’s performance are now on view in Chicago at Rhona Hoffman Gallery! Susan Hefuna: NOTATIONS at Rhona Hoffman Gallery is on view through May 31st.
