Drawn From Life: Drawing Space
  Green Cardamom, 24th July 2008 to 27th September 2008
  Tuesday - Friday, 11 am to 5 pm, Saturdays, 11 am to 2 pm

  Drawing Space is the second in the trilogy of exhibitions titled Drawn From Life that explores process, memory and embodied space, and form in the drawing practice of over 20 artists from Asia, the Middle East and Europe. Working in a visual language of drawing, the exhibitions, spread over a year, present the viewer with an amalgamation of techniques, vision and content. Though styles may vary dramatically from one artist to the next, all maintain the immediacy of drawing, creating an intimate relationship between artist and spectator. The works at Green Cardamom differ vastly in type, challenging the usual perceptions of drawing’s functionality.

Whether through mental habitation such as memory, or through physical objects, space is articulated when it is occupied. In Drawing Space ten artists explore the idea of the embodiment of space, stretching their understanding of the intangible notions of space in their practice.

Artists in the exhibition include Hamra Abbas, Nazgol Ansarinia, Muhanned Cader, Iftikhar Dadi & Elizabeth Dadi, Noa Lidor, Jess MacNeil, Sojwal Samant, Seher Shah, Mohammad Ali Talpur and Zarina
