Art on Paper, Brussels, 6 – 9 September 201820/08/2018
narrative projects is pleased to present Automatic Drawings by Harm van den Dorpel, an ongoing series of works made with a mechanical cnc-plotter and the artist’s own hand. Various scripts and custom software were used to generate the drawings. Challenging the medium, the artist does not create his work directly himself. Rather, he devises software and a robot, which stands in for him, raising questions about artistic agency and identity in our era of artificial intelligence and increased automation. At the fair we will show an installation of a group of framed drawings that explores formal and conceptual possibilities of this method.
