Daksha Patel’s practice is concerned with digital systems that are used to scan and map the human body. Her work responds to the images produced by medical visualisation technologies and questions how these images change our perceptions and experience of the body. The process of drawing is central to her practice. She works with materials that are unstable such as oil, animal fat, and clay, and draws upon grounds such as vellum and latex, to create drawings that are ephemeral and transitory. She also draws with pencil on paper, to examine the relationship between measurement systems and the body.
This event is aimed at students across all disciplines in Art and Design who want to explore their use of drawing as a conceptual tool in their studio practice. It is free and also open to the public. Please contact the artist to book places, and if you have any questions about the workshops: email@example.com
