Motion Capture is an exhibition that explores the relationship between drawing and the moving image, examining the way in which each one involves both movement and stillness. The exhibition presents works on paper alongside investigations of drawing in other media, including film, video and photography.

The language of film and the cinema was adopted in the mid-20th century by such celebrated artists as Henri Matisse and Henri Michaux to describe their drawing practice. The contemporary artists in Motion Capture make contact with these earlier moments and reveal the ability of drawing to capture and articulate movement.
