The One Year Drawing Project: May 2005-October 2007



Sharmini Pereira The One Year Drawing Project

The One Year Drawing Project, is an experimental drawing exchange involving four of Sri Lanka’s most critically acclaimed contemporary artists – Muhanned Cader, Thamotharampillai Shanaathanan, Chandraguptha Thenuwara and Jagath Weerasinghe. Cader and Thenuwara both have works featured in Drawing Room’s 2024 Biennial

In May 2005, the four artists simultaneously created four unique drawings in their respective studios in Sri Lanka. These drawings were exchanged by post, finding their way between Jaffna in the north and the suburbs of the capital Colombo. Upon receipt of the drawings, four more were duly generated in response to the first set of drawings. In structure this chain of events marked the start of The One Year Drawing Project.

Commissioned and curated by Sharmini Pereira for Raking Leaves, an independent publishing organisation based in London, England, The One Year Drawing Project is an artist’s book project that documents an exchange of viewpoints – both artistic and ideological – over a sustained period of time, bringing commitment and collaboration into dialogue with reaction and consequence.
