Feb 2013 - Motion Capture, Letterkenny



Motion Capture: Drawing and the Moving Image

curated by Ed Krcma and Matt Packer

Regional Cultural Centre, Letterkenny, Co. Donegal, Ireland

22 January - 10 March 2013

Artists: Pierre Bismuth, Tacita Dean, Brian Fay, Tom Hackney, William Kentridge, Alice Maher, Henri Matisse, Henri Michaux, Susan Morris, Ailbhe Ni Bhriain, and Denis Oppenheim.

Motion Capture is an exhibition that explores the relationship between drawing and the moving image, examining the way in which each one involves both movement and stillness. The exhibition presents works on paper alongside investigations of drawing in other media, including film, video and photography.

The language of film and the cinema was adopted in the mid-20th century by such celebrated artists as Henri Matisse and Henri Michaux to describe their drawing practice. The contemporary artists in Motion Capture make contact with these earlier moments and reveal the ability of drawing to capture and articulate movement.

A 183p fully illustrated catalogue is available, featuring texts by participating artists and essays by Ed Krcma, Matt Packer and Chris Clarke.
