Odette Graskie invites the audience to take part in her portraiture drawing practice. A performative drawing event as a visual art form, questions ideas of agency, trust, conventions of portraiture and the relationship through eye contact with strangers. With a greater focus on capturing the connective moment between the artist and sitter, likeness becomes secondary to the affective and playful layers involved in the interaction. The drawing becomes an embodiment of the short moment between the sitter and the artist.

The portraits become a part of the artist’s collection of drawings which are reworked and hand-assembled in bigger bodies of sculptural work. In exchange for participation, the artist gives those portrayed a limited photographic print of one of her artworks.
