Drawing Competition - 1999

Torgeir Husevaag vs Timo Pitkämö at the student exhibition Weisse Zwerge und Rote Riesen, Gallery Neu Deli, Weimar, December 1999.

A performance for two draftsmen, two assistants, and one referee. Me and my opponent each made one drawing according to a set of rules (see “54 hour drawing”), working against space and time-limits. The performance worked similar to a game of chess, where each player alternated in making their “moves” (drawing one circle). The proceedings created a kind of introverted intensity, and lasted for almost two hours. The competition was concluded when my opponent ran out of space, at a point when I had 3 minutes of time left, and he had 5.
