Abstract / Summary

In this piece a fictional narrative is used to explore complications of the common idea of 'observational drawing', the theme of Drawing Forum Conference, 2016. The artist's observation of the world is shown to be a moment in practice that cannot be assumed to come in advance of drawing/inscription, but due to the choreography of the body and the implications of memory, has to be thought differently. To be an observer, the paper concludes, is a part of work that comes later on the basis of an observation that has always already taken place.
