Presented as part of Draw To Perform 3, the International Symposium for Drawing Performance curated by Ram Samocha at Crows Nest Gallery, London, 30-31 July 2016. Burgoyne offers up Counting/walking/- a study in limitless limits. Beginning in one corner or centre of the space, each person has a pool of either ketchup, mayonnaise, brown sauce or mustard to walk through and into, in the process of measuring the space by walking. These materials chosen for their ubiquitous appeal and aroma, add to the absurd logic that is a key facet of his performative drawings and drawing practice as a whole. Each assistant along with Burgoyne, walks a predetermined route around the space. In doing so they count their steps out loud. The elastic around their legs as restraint is a tool to maintain standardised steps by all the performers. For Burgoyne the very idea of reiterating the limits of the space though word and movement, is paradoxically the very means to suggest an alternative limitless space, in the durations count aloud.
