It does so through three distinctive modes: through the capacity of the drawn line to register and give form to psychological states, to mediate relationships to others through the gestures of the body, and as a method of conceptualising three-dimensional objects on a two dimensional plane. Many of these investigations are served by the most basic of tools – a drawing instrument and paper.

Works on display include drawings by Dušan and Voitre Marek, James Cant, and Ivor Francis, Ostoja-Kotkowski, performance films by Dennis Oppenheim from the 1970s and the drawings by Minimalist artists Donald Judd and Ulrich Rückriem.
