CHALKUP21 drawing Exhibition: Samphire Hoe Education Shelter


“CHALKUP21 is an important project because it draws attention to nine very recent examples of art and architecture located on the coast between Capel-le-Ferne and Deal. The artworks and buildings that form the trail will become history in time, of course, and CHALKUP21 will continue to mark them. But what is important and liberating is to mark them now, as this new landscape is emerging.”
Architect Charles Holland

Over the course of the project, Marcia Teusink has led on-site drawing workshops along the trail. The CHALKUP21 drawing sessions are aimed at investigating both formal and conceptual aspects of the nine buildings and public artworks of the CHALKUP21 Trail, as well as their unusual and thoughtful relationships to their particular site. Participants were prompted to ask, when we look at architecture, what do we see? And how do we see it in relation to its surroundings?
