School graduate Daniella Turbin has just launched a new campaign to seek funding to support her first ever Artist In Residency at DRAWInternational in France during February for 3 months. She is very excited by the project and is offering a piece of her original work to her backers. But the clock is ticking…
The Crowd Funding campaign allows backers to pledge a small sum towards the campaign, who in return, can receive a unique piece of Daniella’s work during the residency. She is set to create over sixty drawings and an installation comprised of thousands of suspended hand-drawn marks. However, there is a limited period of time for a minimum pledge in order for her to take up this fantastic opportunity. She needs to raise £2,766 by February 6, 2014 in order to commence this project.
Daniella graduated from the School of Music and Fine Art with her Fine Art degree in 2013, continued her practice and in November went on to be shortlisted for the Turner Contemporary Platform Graduate award as well has have her work exhibited at the Turner Contemporary.
“The residency in France is important in my journey to continue to draw and raise the profile of drawing not only as a tool for thought but as a primary discipline in its own right. France plays a significant part in the development of contemporary drawing as not only does it hold Europe’s first fair dedicated to contemporary drawing; Drawing Now Paris: Le Salon but is home to DRAWinternational, an institution completely dedicated to research into Contemporary drawing.” Says Daniella in advance of the upcoming event. Daniella will be extremely busy in the three months. “As a site responsive artist I will create a minimum of 60 drawings which respond to this new historical and social context. In addition to the 60 drawings I will also create my most ambitious installation yet.”
