Now live: An online exhibition of new drawings by artist Alastair MacLennan, along with drawings by others in response to his score following an open submission call-out.

Unable to travel due to COVID 19 restrictions, MacLennan, well-known for his site-responsive ‘actuations’ (his term for performance/installations) has been using his Belfast studio in the last nine months for daily drawing actions. Focusing on a twisted paper napkin, he draws on two A2 sized pieces of paper simultaneously with both hands using his peripheral vision.
