This book charts a 29-month period of drawing exchange between four of Sri Lanka's most important contemporary artists. In May 2005, the artists each created a drawing and sent it to one other artist in the group, who produced a new drawing in response to the one received. This process of exchange continued until each of the artists had received and sent 52 drawings, with the project reaching its conclusion in October 2007. This book presents all 210 drawings from the project in sequence. A timeline of events, provided in a supplementary booklet, recalls the period of violent conflict in Sri Lanka that served as a backdrop against which the project unfolded.
