"James Steventon’s 13 Hours with Weighted Vest (BST) prioritises drawing as a verb, an action, over drawing as a noun. The result of the private performance is a glimpse of an endurance experience, without which there is no drawing (noun). In his attempt to limit the spatial expanse of the drawing and without compromising the enduring length of the drawing, this activity took place by drawing each breath whilst wearing a weighted vest."
