drawing the global

Marcelo Guimarães Lima

Crossing The Line Conference
Firenze, 2015

"The Global Drawing project, linking young artists in the globalized space of communications today,  rather than a simple inventory of current practices, it is such a cartography: it maps new developments here and now,  and the simultaneous openings of new routes resulting from the larger view of the territories of the present. To draw is to situate oneself in space and time. Art gives form to experience, and in doing so it allows artists and viewers to establish a dialogue with time itself, a dialogue made of both memory and anticipation. It allows us to expand our understanding of the many dimensions of our times and spaces, and to locate ourselves within the territories of the past, the present and the future. "

umbra, shadow drawings by Marcelo Guimarães Lima


"The story of the origin of drawing, as told by Pliny, the Elder (2), states that the fixing of the contours of the shadow of a human profile on a wall, a portrait made by a Corinthian maid to serve as remembrance of her departing loved one, was the beginning of the figurative arts of the ancients. A fugitive form is made into a fixed pattern, as an aide-mémoire of the heart, both the sign of and the “replenishment”, that is, the negation of an absence.
