Abstract

The conference aims to explore the notion of embodied drawing. By embodied drawing we suggest that ‘embodied’ could be synonymous with the act of drawing, that drawing is an act of embodiment. As such, the making of a mark expands to become an act of mediation. Yet if all bodies are mediat(ing)ed, they too mark the skins and surfaces of other bodies in the briefest immediacies – in traces of gesture, events, at and through the borderline. A curious folding of/with materiality – a drawing. And as drawing expands there come lines of flight and queer becomings: of further technological mediations, prostheses, computer augmented realities, boundary-making practices that offer up new forms of embodiment, of bodies yet to be named, without outline. And so we ask; what does it mean to have a body? What can they do? What can be drawn?
