In this work I focused on the fate of the drawing depository and the original drawings, respectively, that were made at the Division of drawing throughout several semesters.
While attempting to acquire the material from students‘ personal archives I faced difficulties awarding/denying the value of such artworks, since most of them were destroyed by the authors themselves.
I was interested in the story of these drawings – the moments in which the effort to create an artwork turns – through its photographic documentation, rolling and archiving – into just a physical material. Its unavailability and difficult manipulation with a paper roll further forces the author to only use the digital archive, which takes over the value of the artwork that the original drawings are missing. Thus, the originals become a matter that turns into its primary form of a paper roll, mainly carrying the legacy of its physical use than its artistic value.
