Synchronicity No. 8

Performative drawings by Collette Broeders “Synchronicity No. 8”.

In performance drawing of “Synchronicity” series, Broeders investigates symmetrical motions of repetition using her body as an instrument to imprint geometric patterns of line. The drawings are performed in private and public space and examine the limitations of the body with continuous motion over several hours until a state of exhaustion is reached. She executes the drawing in a hypnotic rhythm and meditative state that manifests itself into physical form to ultimately unite the viewer with the intimacy of the experience.

A Performance drawing by Collette Broeders of continual rhythmic motion was completed January 6, 2013 at the one ten windows of one ten park : a working space.

"Synchronicity No. 8" Performance Drawing (2012)
Through performance drawing, I communicate how the body traces and experiences space and duration leaving an imprint of past and of present and of what remains. Like a clock of navigational lines, the Synchronicity series act as a measurement of these intervals, both physical and intangible.

The series of Synchronicity drawings investigate symmetrical, repetitive motion using my body as an instrument to form a rhythmic pattern of line. I execute the drawing in a hypnotic tempo and meditative state that manifests itself into physical form to unite the viewer with the intimacy of the experience. The drawings are performed in private and public space and examine the limitations of the body with continuous motion over several hours until a state of exhaustion is reached.

The drawings begin with intense spontaneous gestures within a small space that replicate, synchronize and divide and gradually swell and burst to the outwardly extended body. Like a cell dividing, the internal self-generating energy of the process is bilaterally and equally distributed as the image grows. Ultimately, the drawing becomes a study of contrast showing the peaceful-chaotic, soothing-painful and joyful-desperate moments of the performance.
