A horizontal scroll drawing, folded into a 60 accordion pages, confronts the idea of drawing as a static form. They present a punctuated landscape made of different layers of graphic erosion, the trace of an eruption undoing our sense of identity/territory and its potential borders.
MAP office is a multidisciplinary platform devised by Laurent Gutierrez (Casablanca, 1966) and Valerie Portefaix (Saint-Etienne, 1969). This duo of artists/architects has been based in Hong Kong since 1996, working on physical and imaginary territories using varied means of expression including drawing, photographs, video, installations, performance and literary and theoretical texts. Their entire project forms a critique of spatio-temporal anomalies and documents how human beings subvert and appropriate space. Humour, games and fiction are also part of their approach, in the form of small publications providing a further format for disseminating their work.
