‘Instructions to draw your walk’ by Sofía Garrido is a collaborative publication born from an instructions manual that invite several people to draw their walk, during routes which have been usual in the past, or are usual at the present.
This is a collaborative book, which collects drawings by 37 people who were instructed to draw past or present daily routes based on the movements of their own bodies.
The collected sripes are dictated by the body, not by the mind. They are abstract textures that make visible involuntary gestures, sincere and spontaneous gestures.
The result is an involuntary scan (similar to asemic writing), in which stains, steadiness, and the thickness of the stroke become the narrative elements.
The book contains drawings of Lorena Alarcón, Megumi Andrade, Sebastián Arancibia, Fernanda Aránguiz, Ignacio Barceló, Sebastián Barrante, Estefanía Bravo, Cristián Briceño, Javier Cancino, Rodrigo Cienfuegos, Juan Pablo Corvalán, Felipe Cussen, Magdalena Derosas, María Espi, Hugo Fante, Pablo Fante, Eloísa Garrido, Nicolás Garrido, Sofía Garrido, Martín Gubbins, Martín La Roche, Mariano Mediavilla, Esteban Millar, Carla Möller, Helga Möller, Camila Ortega, Felipe Prado, Antonino Reinoso, Camila Romero, Esteban Sandoval, Gabriel Tang, Catalina Tapia, Ximena Ulibarri, Francisca Valenzuela, María Jesús Vela, Matías Vial and Pablo Vindel.
