‘Drawn Together’, formed in 2008, is a London-based group of four artists who collaborate on performance drawing projects and share theoretical and research interests. Working with graphite and light, sound and animation they perform drawing processes and address the relationship between the body and presence, time and space. Notes on a Table includes two large drawings (each two-hour duration) made while in conversation gathered around a rectangular kitchen table. The first drawing in 2010 was followed by a second one this year, on the same surface in the same space to prompt conversation on what drawing together again might mean, or change,  five years on. This exhibition curated by Jill Journeaux and Helen Gorrill was part of the Drawing Conversations symposium reflecting on collective and collaborative drawing experiences.
