TALK -RESIDENCY UNLIMITED, BROOKLYN
RU's curator in residence, Joana P. R. Neves will discuss her curatorial research that focuses on the intricate relations between drawing and photography.
What happens when the line, a paradigm of drawing and a useful tool to measure, organize and even build, is associated with photography and with concepts? Etienne-Jules Marey wondered if the line existed in nature before his recording machines turned it into the very "language of nature".
A few decades later, for instance, Alexander Rodchenko meant to start a movement called "Lineism". Throughout the twentieth century the line has been a paradigm of avant-gardist artistic strategies to represent the world in a more abstract and even conceptual way. Looking at the nineteenth century's scientific and photographic use of the line enlightens both its importance nowadays and its specificity then, through the revisited notion of the index.
