The work of Sinéad Spelman (1978) focuses on the practice of drawing, writing and sculpture from a personal perspective which simultaneously investigates collective emotional states.  Drawings with simple, bare, almost schematic strokes, embody characters who are in defiant resistence to ambiguous and disturbing situations to which subjects do not give in but do remain passive, with an indolence that, paradoxically, can be considered active;  bodies often appear incomplete or amputated, rendering them useless for the production line. This dysfunctionality can be read, therefore, as a form of permanent strike.
For Nivell Zero, the artist explores these issues whilst experimenting with materials and formats and investigating the relationship between drawing and writing.
