This catalogue is published to coincide with the exhibition Nowhere is Here, curated by The Drawing Room. The international group exhibition taps into the capacity of drawing to capture the contingent quality of the natural environment and our complex relationship with it.
Four of the artists have gravitated to London from different parts of the world and all are establishing international profiles. Each artist brings a different relationship to the natural environment, be it imagined, experienced or remembered, emotional or dispassionate. The artists use drawing to create hybrid worlds that could suggest a repositioning of our relationship to nature and society.
Published to accompany the touring exhibition at Aspex, Portsmouth, 29 March – 18 May 2008; The Drawing Room, London, 12 June – 20 July 2008; and Fruehsorge contemporary drawings, Berlin, 20 September – 25 October 2008.
