I Swear I Saw This

What Are You Doing, Drawing? 

Nile Sunset Annex, Cairo, Egypt

23 February – 23 March 2013

What does it take to become a drawing? What does it take to make a drawing? What can a drawing be? These are the questions raised by the Nile Sunset Annex curators. In an attempt to respond, I Swear I Saw This evokes notions of erasure that emerge from the elusive space between seeing and believing. Responding to a show where drawing as a form is called on, Take to the Sea experiments with the performativity of the act of drawing, but also that of its disappearance.
