In 2012, Dutch artist Bart Lodewijks began a three-year commission from The Model contemporary art centre in Sligo, Ireland. This book marks the culmination of that assignment, which entailed making public drawings in the city’s neighbourhoods, and resulted in an exhibition. It also marks a significant point in the artist’s career, where fifteen years of practice is reflected through a continuum of drawings and encounters with communities who have hosted the artist. His enigmatic yet beautiful chalk lines, enacted upon urban surfaces such as walls, buildings, fences, and sidewalks, are a fleeting testament to the challenges and interactions the artist experiences in his work. The book comes with a cover in four different colours.
