CURRENT BLOGGERS FOR ACCORDANCE PROGRAMME:
SARAH JURY is a writer and a facilitator of art practices, through her work at The Pigeon Wing, Code of Contingency and independent projects. Currently studying Critical Writing for Art and Design at the Royal Collage of Art, her blog posts will address the internet as a place, and will discuss subjective human interaction within the space of heightened digital connectivity.
LE PETIT NEANT is a publication which explores the art of drawing and the creation of a narrative through images. The voice of drawing becomes stronger in the absence of text and words. It says: I am nothing and I come from nothing. And this is why it is so fluid, so difficult to define, because it exists and does not exist. So small and so powerful. A Small Nothingness.
Le Petit Néant blog posts will explore (with plenty of incoherence) the fluidity and constant transformation of the art and practice of drawing; they will look at what drawing might be in relation to digital mediums, focusing on its relationships with the art world, the market, the paper and the screen.
