This will be the first Irish solo project of Portuguese artist Diogo Pimentão. Timed to coincide with Gerda Frömel, Diogo’s practice seeks to open the horizon of the drawing and its conventions to other dimensions, other processes and other tools.
The act of drawing involves a relationship with him close to the body choreography, which determines the scale of the work: papers mechanically bent by hand to the major compounds of monochrome black lines drawn by the body in motion.
