Task-oriented performance, ballpoint ink on paper
2017 - on going
Under the premise of drawing a circle and not closing it so that the multiple copy of this may follow, people are invited to draw until they indefinitely decide to stop.
People are thus put under a process where, between the gaze and the gesture, the capture and the production, they seek for the mimesis of their own action.
Premises for the concretisation of each drawing:
-Use an A2 size white paper and a black BIC pen;
-Start in the center of the paper by drawing a circle without closing it, so that afterwards, it can be replicated several times;
-Draw the next circle as near and as similar as possible as the previous one;
-After you begin drawing, only stop when you get to a satisfaction or exhaustion point;
-It is possible to make pauses, but only for a brief moments, as to change your position or to rest your hand;
-Never take the point of the pen out of the paper, except for when you are making a pause;
-Write down the time it took you to make the drawing in the right bottom corner, in the back of the paper.
