Tannery Projects Billboard Commission:
Interior, Eight Chairs and Empty Table, 2021, original drawing: Oil paint on primed paper.
The drawing was created in the home of the artist’s friend, absent of guests during the summer of 2020. Two hand-cut A4 templates were pasted directly onto the image surface. The A4 templates refer to the A4 drawings exhibited in the 2021 Drawing Biennial in the gallery being the billboard, to which Macdonald had contributed a work.
Interior, Eight Chairs, and Empty Table was the first of a series of four temporary billboard commissions for Tannery Projects, curated by Nina Shen-Poblete.
