Concept by Yujin Lee
DRAWING SHOW II: Connecting Dots is a collaborative relay project between visual artists, writers, text translators, musicians, dancers and cinematographers. The process of the project is as follows:

The initiating drawing* will be shown to two writers. They will each write a work inspired by the single drawing (it may be a fictional story or a poem in the native language of the writers). Each writings will be translated by a certified translators into the native language of the two musicians, who will each compose a music inspired by each writings. Each musical scores will then be given to each of the two dancers, who will create a choreography onto the music. Finally, the two dance videos will be each shown to two groups of five visual artists, whom will all create a “drawing” inspired by the dance without the music. *Drawing by Gerhard Richter (Drawing II, graphite on paper, 59.5 x 40.38 in, 2005)
