ART & EXHIBITIONS
Hannah Horsetall and Malcolm Bell: Joint Drawings, Greylriars Kirk House, Candlemaker Row.
Hannah Horselall and Malcolm Bell have been working together on drawings since 1985. What is most lascinating to the viewer about this tiny exhibition (just enough room to turn around in, on the lirst-lloor landing at the Kirkhouse), is how the decisions are made. Each artist is at liberty to destroy, amend or expand the marks made by the other; yet what could turn into a rampant battle at egos is in tact remarkably restrained. The marks are small, building into a net or evoking a pile of stones, the finished drawn elements olten huddled in one section

ol the paper. It would be interesting to know how the artists jointly know when a work is linished; most at them have a coherence that suggest a satistying resolution of the joint decision-making, but in one case the marks cover the whole of the paper, implying that the moment at resolution is not always so easily achievable. The most pressing problem seems to be how the artists are to develop their technique. This is an exhibition ol drawings only, so the important indicators may well be missing, but as it covers live years, a more obvious development of this challenging, subversive way at making work could have been expected.
