OVERBOOKED: <i>Raindrops Keep Fallin' on my Head</i>: Durational drawing performance by Aleksandra Mir

 In the words of London-based Polish artist Aleksandra Mir, “The Sharpie [is] the marker of my time and of drawing, as simple the trace of a frail act of performance, of both being lost and of finding one’s way.” Using this everyday writing instrument, Mir’s practice frequently references publishing and mobilises collective forms of mark-making. For Raindrops keep fallin' on my head, Mir has gathered image references related to water and rainfall. Often large in scale, her works evolve through the collaboration with a team of assistants and are only made possible through this durational process of public co-creation.  For her first commission in Hong Kong, she will conduct a durational drawing performance throughout BOOKED: Hong Kong Art Book Fair using this communal methodology, and along with her artist books will feature the result as part of OVERBOOKED:.
