Viewing SENSE: Beuys/ Gormley — A Conversation through drawing

Now’s your chance to see drawings by the prominent post-war artist Joseph Beuys alongside those by Antony Gormley. Curated by Gormley and installed across the Ropac’s Chapel Gallery in London, SENSE explores the artists’ shared ground — namely a joint interest in reconceptualising human relations with the natural world, social networks and the built environment.

For Beuys, the physical process of drawing was an essential means through which to crystalise his thoughts. In turn, Gormley describes ‘the act of drawing as a form of tuning.’ For him, as for Beuys, it is conceived as ‘a necessary daily activity in which thought is made physical and grounded.’ As you meander around the gallery, stop before three of Beuys’s four Movement Rhythm works from 1962. These three drawings are allied with two by Gormley, Set III and Search III, that ‘acknowledge the grid as the trellis of modernity and the body as a zone of becoming.’

It’s a rare opportunity to see the fundamental role of drawing to both artists’ practices, as well as their shared influences and distinctive vision. Run don’t walk.
