Performed during the two part exhibition "the Earth not a Globe" at the Rokeby Gallery in London.
Jasiek Mischke's work deals with the proximity of one thing to another. As an artist he is interested in how far he can extend his presence. His drawings, performances, texts or installations appear as delicate and tender presentations, but in actuality are driven by subversive machinations. On the evening of 29th July Mischke will make a physical manifestation of his drawings in the current exhibition, seen in an ice sculpture, and inspired by the layout requirement of the accompanying exhibition catalogue - that the image could go full bleed.
He will also host an informal talk and series of micro-interventions that are characteristic of his live work.
Separation of colour is a re-occuring theme in Mischke's practice, from his time spent in a t-shirt printing company. His drawings reflect this; being a series of coloured lines, they individually follow the artist's hand across the page. Collectively, they create waves accumulating slight curves or inaccuracies when drawing straight lines. By cutting off the end of his drawings Mischke tries to make them potentially go on forever and sees the premature end to the work similarly to that of exists on maps.
