Tape It!

Tape It!

Artist: Briony Barr
Curator: Kate Davis

Ararat Gallery TAMA (Textile Art Museum Australia)

Imagine a drawing that has become bored of paper and wandered off the page in search of a new adventure… welcome to Tape It! 

Drawing rules:

1. Use the coloured tape and scissors to draw shapes and patterns.

2. Make your drawing using only straight lines.

3. You can draw with tape on the glass windows, white walls and columns.

4. Do not go over the top of anyone else’s artwork.

5. Please do not use the tape to write words.

Tape It! is based on the work of Melbourne-based artist, Briony Barr, who has designed and run collaborative drawings that have lasted from several hours to several months, involving children, families, students, artists, scientists and lots of tape! She is interested in how rules can be used to shape a creative process and how the deconstruction of an artwork can lead to new inspiration.
