We recently had the honour (and slightly difficult task!) of printing a 6 metre long print for Gosia Wlodarczak – probably the longest fine art print we have yet undertaken here at Image Science. With an immense amount of planning and ingenuity, Pete managed to successfully complete it on the first attempt! Multiple chairs, poles and hands were all part of a jerry rigged take up spool – with the printed surface being protected by archival plastic for the entire length – see image below!
Gosia does all sorts of interesting things – for example, Gosia is currently spending 6.5 hours a day for 17 days in an enclosed space without any exposure to the outside world, continuously drawing from her senses. Audiences are able to view her progress via a live webcam that is streaming in the gallery.
The Performance will finish at 1pm on the 5th July, with Gosia emerging from the space and discussing the experience. The space will then be open for audiences to view the work until the 17th of August.
Gosia has previously created Performance Drawings in a similar context, notably her Window Shopping Frost Drawing at GoMA Gallery in Brisbane last year. If this is anything to go by, I would definitely set aside an afternoon to pop into RMIT Gallery to take a look.
Image Science have been very easy to deal with, more than happy to help someone who previously knew nothing about how any of this worked! I knew what I wanted to achieve but no idea how to make it happen but had literally a million questions that were answered for me and was guided through how to make my plan a reality. I’m very happy with the result!
