Walk the Streets of London Inside a Drawing Room

Didn't Aleksandra Mir's parents ever tell her not to draw on walls? Perhaps they did, and it just fell on deaf ears. A good thing to, because otherwise we wouldn't get to visit her Drawing Room. Mir describes the exhibition as a 'a collective live drawing extravaganza', in which she and her ten assistants draw all over the walls and floor of the gallery space to create a mural that leaves behind the 'confines of the small-scale, manageable sheet of paper towards a larger unruly reality.'

The collaborative work represents the architecture of London, using lines and angles to depict streets buildings. Most impressive is the stairs leading down the underground; although on a flat surface, it has incredible depth.

The exhibition runs until the 19th July, and there are events alongside that you can attend:
