Following the footsteps of Katy Moran’s approach to paintings, where “each painting has to be a new endeavor, a new search, a new discovery of something”, the 5-day project with artist Hydar Dewachi explores creating sketchbook compositions from words, images, thoughts and storylines.

It is a journey back and forth between the digital and physical where digital images will be printed and layered onto the compositions and then journal pages scanned and exhibited online.

Project exhibition
Saturday 21 February: 10am – 6pm
Sunday 22 February: 12noon – 5pm

An exhibition of the work generated from both youth projects Invitation to a Voyage and Brain Dance*  will be shown in the Events & Education Room.

Funded by Hackney Council, as part of Discover Young Hackney 2015
