28 September 2010 | Gosia Wlodarczak is staging a drawing performance in Canberra next Sunday 10 October as part of The Big Draw, a community-based drawing festival.

DUST COVER PAINTING: THE TRIAL BY SYDNEY NOLAN begins a new series of participatory performative works titled my personal art history, made in conversation with existing artworks from collections around the world,” says Wlodarczak.

“The project is a non-chronological journey through my visual memory bringing to life an image archive of artworks stored in my brain from the very first I remember often looking at when I was five: Jozef Chelmonski,
Bociany (The Storks) (1900), until my recent intimate dialogue with Sidney Nolan's The Trial (1947) [held in] the National Gallery of Australia collection.”

The performance will take place in the National Gallery of Australia foyer from 10am to 2pm on 10 October 2010. Wlodarczak will also present a talk on her practice at 6pm on 9 October 2010.
