SMALL IS BEAUTIFUL

United Kingdom

Event Dates

The exhibition is opened from January 31, 2020 until May 01, 2020.

Artist

Joanne B Kaar

Opening Hours

10 am - 16 pm

Location

Royal Botanic Gardens Edinburgh
Library Foyer,
Science Buildings

More Information

Joanne B Kaar  was invited by the British lichen Society and the Royal Botanic Gardens, Edinburgh, to exhibit 'North', her embossed paper coat inspired by coastal lichens, and a selection of here watercolour studies of rocks.

"...Lichens are one of the richest parts of Scotland's internationally important diversity and RBGE has a long legacy of promoting their scientific understanding.
They are also a constant source of wonder for artists: the splashes of colour on our rocky shores; the surprising quiet filigree of finely-wrought life on a winter twig; the luxurious tapestry draping and dripping off limbs in the western woods. Many are equally intrigued by the very special relationships between the fungi, algae and cyanobacteria that live together symbiotically as lichens.
This exhibition, curated by Sarah Roberts, highlights the beauty and intricacy of these fascinating organisms featuring expert scientific illustrations, contemporary artworks and work produced in art-science classes and botanical illustration courses here at Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh...."

SANCTUARY

United States

Event Dates

The exhibition is opened from January 24, 2020 until April 30, 2020.

Artist

Carrie Scanga

Opening Hours

To be scheduled.

Location

University of New England, Ketchum Gallery, Biddeford, Maine

SANCTUARY is a traveling art installation to be exhibited in medical centers, hospitals, art galleries, and academic sites across the US

More Information

Writer, Emily Rapp Black and artist, Carrie Scanga will interpret viewers’ stories of medical circumstances in visual and textual forms in an ever-changing paper installation accompanied by written text.
In each venue, viewers are invited to record and submit their stories within the immersive installation. After each venue, Scanga and Black will dismantle the sculpture and read/listen to all submitted stories, identifying moments of rupture, healing, working-through, and/or peace. Based on viewers’ submissions, the collaborators will change both the paper structure of the installation and the textual accompaniment. Blacks’ accompanying essays will provide intellectual context by interweaving viewers’ submitted stories with trauma theory, philosophy, and personal experience.

All submissions will be kept anonymous. SANCTUARY is a living installation, a space that hears experiences of those working in, admitted to, or visiting medical centers. It seeks to have communal, cultural, and intellectual impact. Medical conditions often create feelings of isolation; by comingling two powerful modalities—visual and textual--SANCTUARY actively reverses such isolation. The changing installation echoes the idea that collective storytelling acts as a dynamic vehicle for individual and social change. SANCTUARY demonstrates new ways of thinking about peoples’ life experiences that involve medical care, moving beyond commonly-used terms such as “survival” and “resiliency.” Rather than viewing recovery as the end goal, our project encourages medical conditions and recovery to co-exist, giving visual and verbal forms to both processes.

Sächsische Landesärztekammer
Schützenhöhe 16

More Information

The starting point of Heike Berl's most recent work is the rose in the context of both contemporary and contemporary history: the Munich resistance group "White Rose" around the Scholl brothers and sisters or the annual "White Rose" campaign held in Dresden since 2005 on February 13th. Heike Berl sees her artistic engagement with the rose motif as a question of where to go, as a pictorial contribution to human values.
In spring 2020 the current works of the series WEISSE ROSE - Nature and Symbol will be shown in a large solo exhibition at the Saxon State Medical Association in Dresden.

Park Seo-Bo, Minjung Kim

Germany

Event Dates

The exhibition is opened from September 29, 2019 until March 29, 2020.

Artist

Park Seo-Bo, Minjung Kim

Opening Hours

Daily from 10 am - 6 pm

Closed on December 16 - 26, 2019
Opened  December 27- 30, 2019
Closed on December 31, 2019 - January 10, 2020

Location

Langen Foundation
Raketenstation Hombroich 1
41472 Neuss

More Information

In 1983, Park Seo-Bo began using hanji paper, the traditional Korean paper made from the bark of the mulberry tree. In this process, the paper is moistened and applied in layers to the canvas, formed with various tools and then processed to create a sculptural picture surface. This development, together with the introduction of color, allowed Park to expand his artistic practice without abandoning his desire to create emptiness through reduction.
The exhibition will take place throughout the museum and comprises 40 works that provide a broad overview of his practice.

Minjung Kim's abstract paintings are created using layers of Hanji – a traditional Korean paper made from the inner bark of mulberry trees. Using the rhythm of her breath on a lit incense stick, she gently and rhythmically burns the edges of each individual strip, and using a traditional Korean gluing technique painstakingly collages these strips, layer by layer, onto a larger Hanji surface.

More Information

Michel Olivier - ''marine impressions''
Maritime Discovery Centre, Old Lighthouse of Penmarc'h, Finistère France

Uniting typography and paper, on the theme maritime impressions. A passionate encounter to sublimate the paper, to praise it, give it another dimension, new forms. Present it as a living matter. Play on gramages and pulp linen, hemp or mule bark, to give birth to unexpected creations. A story like no other, the idea of a hyphen for the same passion.

45 downstairs gallery
45 Flinders Lane

More Information

When making my most recent work about climate change I created paper from cotton workmen’s shirts and bed sheets donated to the families who were affected by floods in north Queensland. To this paper pulp I added soot and burnt leaf inclusions which were washed onto the beach after the rolling succession of Australian bushfires. Onto these papers I stitched  crushed paper stained with orange, red and black ink to represent fiery embers.
In my artist residency in Iceland in 2019, I made paper denoting ‘melting glaciers’ also from the same bed linen paper pulp and embedded it into sections of washed up fishing net which had been mended and re-mended. In previous work about the northern NSW floods of 2017 when my art studio was flooded, I collaged flood marked and silt stained papers together to create a narrative of survival and resilience .

These materials carry the energy of places affected by climate change. They are a metaphor for our planetary interconnectedness and speak of the hopeful efforts to address and mend this climatic emergency.

Event Dates

The exhibition is opened from February 01, 2020 until February 28, 2020.

Artist

Anni Fiil

Opening Hours

Opening Reception: February 01, 2020 - 2 pm
Wednesday - Thursday 1-5 pm
Saturday - Sunday 10 am - 15 pm

Location

Kunsthal vARTe
Smedegade 35D
DK 6800 Varde

More Information

There will be opening speeches by Kate Skjerning and music by guitarist Christian N. K. Hansen as we open Anni Fiil's exhibition BACK.
In February, there is paper art on the program when the artist Anni Fiil shows paper works from different periods in her artistic work, combined with brand new works created for the exhibition at Kunsthal VARTe.

It is a retrospective exhibition and the title thus refers to the artist's previously performed paper works: “It will be fun for me to look back and find out how to combine the works into a whole so that they form an exciting and varied exhibition - try to find out whether I can always recognize myself in the works, or whether there is someone who should be discarded and never shown again, or whether they should simply be shown in another context? I want to find out how events in my life have, or may not have at all, affected my artistic work, ” says Anni Fiil.
