Cartography of Persistence
(Performance of Daily Drawings at one ten park : a working space)
2010 and 2013 (impermanent)
As a practice of everyday ritual, Broeders is drawn to a model of reenactment creating an image each day for that precise interval of time which through lines, patterns and colours convey a sense of real or imaginary space. The ritual is repeated that employs a map of persistence where an image of each day transcends into the next. When all are arrayed in a gridded system, a “Cartography of Persistence”, they not only preserve the order of routine but give sense of rational environmental context. The viewer is drawn to navigate the collective, mutating information encountered in daily routine that not only defines our space but who we are.
The series of 5” x 5” drawings are now comprised of over 1,270 individual works on paper and continue indefinitely. An impermanent work of drawing following the ritual of the Cartography of Persistence series will be created daily onto the one ten park : a working space windows from June 28, 2013 through July 27, 2013. The work will be on display throughout Artcite’s Summer Arts Festival 2013.
