Expanded Drawing, Choreo-Graphic Figures


Presentation by Nikolaus Gansterer at Kunsthal Charlottenborg, in Copenhagen, Denmark. Based on images, materials and examples of his work Nikolaus Gansterer will introduce into his ongoing practice of notation and practices of translation. Gansterer understands the processes of thinking and drawing as analogous. He is thus concerned with the fundamental question of how to translate processes of thought, and explores how the act of drawing can become a tool of communication. In the course of the presentation Gansterer wishes to go in dialogue with the audience. In order to approach the materiality of perception Gansterer applies a unique performative grammar, in which the artist’s flow of observations in relation to his environment manifest as captivating live drawings, diagrams and arrangements. He questions how these situative constructions of meaning could be expanded towards a radical autopoiesis or even sympoiesis: where a line of thought becomes a line on paper, turns into a line in space, and then again a line articulated with the whole body or transforms into an expanded object.
