Faculty of Classics


Explore the exhibition, Lines of Site, with artist Debbie Loftus, followed by an artist-led drawing tour. Based on works produced during a residency at the British Museum, she focuses in on the resonance of shattered fragments and broken lines of the Parthenon frieze in her work. Debbie uses analogue and digital techniques to deconstruct and reconstruct her images, mediating between ancient and modern - and seeing and not-seeing. Following her artist talk, Debbie will lead participants armed with pencils and sketchbooks around the exhibition to look more closely at the works themselves, observing and contextualising the dynamic of broken line, space and colour within the collection.
