The Primates NoteBook is an exhibition that presents a body of work produced by Craig Dongoski through meditation and collaboration with a language-trained chimpanzee named Panzee. More specifically, the works featured are derived from unprompted marks made by Panzee on a single notebook page. The choice of limiting my featured work to this single is to display the expansive richness of one artifact that occurs from just one encounter. The works in this exhibition embrace a production method that uses the process of how-to-write through repetition and copying. The results further Dongoski’s exploration into the gray area between writing and drawing and its relation to the origin of expression. Encounters with Panzee occured at The Language Research Center in Atlanta by way of close collaboration/cooperation with scientists Dr. Charles Menzel, Dr. David Washburn and caretaker John Kelley.
