1. Fabrica Brighton 2005 : Early Redemption


      In September 2005 Mark Anstee was commissioned to make a live drawing at the Fabrica project in Brighton.

      For 25 days he was suspended high-up in the chancel of this former church and, appearing as a blurred shadow, he created an accumulating mass of individually drawn figures onto a vast translucent membrane.

      “Early Redemption focuses on the act of drawing and the witnessing of that act.

      By placing the spectator and the artist on either side of the drawing surface, each party is connected by the shared experience of seeing new forms created in front of their eyes.”
