A series of drawings made in Paris with felt pen in small notebooks. The hours-long work on the drawings, which are all made right on the spot, displaces Giezendanner into meditation and lets him perceive the urban space in different ways.
"Half slumber, half wake. This precious moment of finding yourself in the midst, by white light and bright bedsheets. You don't know where you are, then open the windows. Welcome the metropolitan noise, its tracks of consumerism and waste, observing not all are bedded soft and safe."
Since 1998, Ingo Giezendanner, alias GRRRR, has been documenting the urban spaces in which he has travelled
and lived. Apart from his native city of Zurich, his travels have taken him to diverse cities from New York and New Orleans to Cairo, Nairobi, Karachi and Colombo. Everywhere he travels, he captures his surroundings on location with pen on paper
. His drawings have been presented in numerous magazines, books and animated films as well as in spacious installations and wallpaintings.
