Swiss artist Alexia Turlin is proposing to meet the public at this year’s Fair of Alternative Art of Sudbury through free ambulant drawing interventions. Equipped with a grocery cart and the required materials, her course and activities will be documented in stop motion. She will, amongst other initiatives, be asking people to draw images of their ideas of Switzerland, on a blank postcard and indicate their address. These cards will return home with her and will be completed by the Swiss public who will reply to them, during cultural events, such as: openings, drawing courses, interventions with students at HEAD (Haute Ecole d'Art et de Design, Geneva), or at The Milkshake Agency, a space Turlin has been programming for ten years.
The FAAS takes place from May 6 to 10, at the Rainbow Centre in Sudbury.
