Faultlines (7 Days)
Whitewash on shop window interior
750 cm x 250 cm
Faultlines (Seven Days) was a week long drawing performance, which took place in February 2011, consisting of a large scale line drawing on the interior of a vacant shop window.
"By working into a whitewashed surface throughout a seven day time period, the deliberate and personal act of making will become exposed to passing viewers, day by day, moment by moment.
The work is constructed by removing a succession of lines in the whitewash around selected imperfections or faults on the surface of the window. The act of the making of the work becomes increasingly more public, as lines are removed and the vacant interior becomes more exposed.
Nick Kennedy’s artistic practice explores the conflict between chance and influence, order and chaos, success and failure, rules and irregularity."
