Flight: Drawing Interpretations


Client: The National Gallery with London College of Fashion

Flight: Drawing Interpretations was the culmination of work at the National Gallery in response to the theme of ‘Flight’, developed over the course of a year by a group of practice-led researchers at London College of Fashion. The range of disciplines included fashion design, fine art, fashion illustration, textile design, costume and dance. The final outcomes took a variety of forms, including direct drawing on paper, animation, film, costume, performance and fashion design.

The project was conceived and led by Charlotte Hodes, Professor of Fine Art at London College of Fashion. Alongside Charlotte, White Line Projects co-curated the project's online interactive exhibition and website and publication, with Ben Whyman and Dr. Flavia Loscialpo in collaboration with design studio She Was Only.

White Line Projects was also responsible for the photography and visual content, creating the aesthetic for how the works were presented online and in the publication. 

In addition, as one of the ten practitioners selected for presentation, White Line Project's Xenia Capacete Caballero work explored the concept of mapping, movement and location through the use of drawing, film and music.

The project culminated in a curated Friday Late evening of performances and temporary installations at the National Gallery in June 2013.
