Drawing is a spontaneous, intuitive recording of the artist’s emotions, grasping feelings in the process of making, when the emotions and their recording become one. The competition poses one fundamental question to artists, a question about trust for rudimentary artistic activities, about the meaning of drawing in their artistic practice. The diversity of autonomous artworks is the utmost value and at the same time the best evidence of drawing’s vitality. A gesture emerging from the chaos of emotions and signs, what is more, a gesture that initiates the ordering of the world.
