The group exhibition Gulliver’s Sketchbook takes the visitors of KAI 10 | ARTHENA FOUNDATION on an imaginary journey that follows the curiosity and fantasy of the pencil as it delves into microscopic worlds or maps the inside of the body, meticulously traces the surfaces of objects, small and large, and even engages with the distances and dimensions of the universe. In reference to Jonathan Swift’s novel Gulliver’s Travels, published in 1726, the exhibition spans an arc from the graphic recording of the outer world via filigree geometric constructions or traces and impressions of the body to the free and playful outline of surreal realms and scenarios. Here, the particular focus is on how the bodily activity of drawing relates to existing or imagined physical dimensions, also in respect to shifts in cultural-historical perspectives.
