Response Panels (Vagabond)

Response Panels – Vagabond (Study: Delacroix I 2011)
Response Panels – Vagabond (Black II : 2010 Landscape)

Putting a painting in a box to travel, functioning both as frame and drawing board for an audience. Sharing and repeating my own process: responding to / copying a selected painting. Drawing sheets for different venues / time spans. Form to note contributor’s names. The set-up is flexible and mobile, response conditions may be adjusted and varied, maintaining the rule that there always need to be at least two, who respond together.

Response: Susan Farrelly + Bernhard Gaul, 2015

The set-up works well for smaller, one-on-one collaborations, as an opportunity to stand and draw and talk.

Set up in a public space the drawing panes become a public location, the shared responsibility of all, like other public spaces, with responses reaching from tender or timid contributions (if any) to vandalism over night (when no one is watching).
