May 27 - Jul 19, 2014
Private view Wed Jun 11 6:30pm - 8:30pm
The project ‘Drawing Room’ responds to the exploding energy of the fast-developing London skyline and explores drawing as a collective activity.
 
Taking over the gallery as a production space, Mir and her team of ten assistants will create a live drawing installation, using only ‘Sharpie’ marker pens. The work will be based on the architecture of London, and include expansive street scenes and intimate interior views that invite you to enter these spaces. Working directly onto a specialist canvas backdrop, commonly used in theatre, the resulting mural will be 4 metres high and will extend to over 24 metres in length. After completion, the resulting installation will remain on exhibition for an additional six weeks.
 
There will be a director's tour on 11th June 6-6.30pm (open to all)
