In February 1999, Claude Heath undertook a two-week residency at the Institute as part of a series of contemporary artists' Dialogues with the Sculpture Collection of Leeds Museums & Galleries. He chose to work blindfolded, working directly from four sculptures in the collection; simultaneously tracing the object with one hand, and drawing it with the other.
Heath's drawings provide a record of explorations into the dialogue between sense and perception, working as a form of research or as cognitive experiments.
Following the residency, Heath enlarged his drawings into murals for a later exhibition. This publication reproduces the original drawings, along with commentaries by the artist on his experiences while drawing from these objects.
