About the work

This drawing is a small version, made specifically for the Drawing Room, from a series of works titled ‘Repetitive Movements that Make and Unmake the World’. These drawings notate actions like opening a door, tying shoe laces, or stirring a cup of tea, that are so common as to become automatic. In order to produce these drawings I return these movements to conscious attention, sensing also what parts of my body are activated by attention or touch as I carry them out. I reproduce the movements until I end up with a very specific choreography. This action sequence is drawn as a line, following the direction of the movement and also of my attention as it flows through a bending thumb, the palm of the hand, or a pinkie finger. Encircled spaces are coloured in, and surprisingly suggest anatomy, as if my body’s interior were imprinted in its actions.

Maximum bids

You are more likely to be the winning bidder if at the outset you place a maximum bid i.e. the maximum amount you are willing to pay for the work. Your maximum bid is not visible to other bidders. If another bidder exceeds your maximum bid you will receive an automatic notification. If you have placed a maximum bid the auction site will automatically place bids on your behalf, but only as much is necessary to make sure that you remain the highest bidder, until it reaches your maximum bid. These automatic bids are placed in increments, as shown above.
