Edge (polish name: Krawędź)

Poland

Event Dates

The exhibition is opened from January 12, 2024 until June 13, 2024.

Artist

Maria Matyja-Rozpara Maria Matyja-Rozpara

Opening Hours

Monday to Saturday 9 am - 6 pm
Sunday 9 am - 4 pm

Location

Museum of Papermaking
Kłodzka 42
57-340 Duszniki-Zdrój

More Information

Maria Matyi-Rozpara's new exhibition is titled "Edge" (polish name: „Krawędź”). Etymology derives its meaning from the polish word "krawać" meaning to cut, but this also means to give shape and search for form. At the same time, the word means the edge, the end of something and the necessary contact with something else.  Thus, it is an exceptionally capacious name for the exhibition, suggestive but not imposing, assuming respect for the viewer and inviting them to work individually on reading the presented objects.

Meanwhile, paper is very often both a carrier and material testimony of ideas - sometimes the most important ones, determining the order of the world. As a substance of organic origin, it contains its structure written in every smallest particle.

In the case of this exhibition, paper is both a visual material and an ideological message although it is not given explicitly, as a record.

The exhibition largely has a character that refers to the world of Christian symbolism. It is a testimony to its experience, but also a dialogue with its traditional forms and an attempt to translate it into a new, inclusive language.

Watching yet another exhibition of works by Maria Matyi-Rozpara, one can ponder what some call the power of images - how are they present in our lives, how do they affect us? To what extent are they necessary for an idea? Or its attempt to understand or experience? Would we stop to think about these issues if not for artists? Exhibitions like this one allow us to stop, to breathe, to give ourselves space for reflection.

Maria Matyja-Rozpara - "Edge"

Poland

Event Dates

The exhibition is opened from January 12, 2024 until June 13, 2024.

Artist

Maria Matyja-Rozpara Maria Matyja-Rozpara

Opening Hours

November to April, Tuesday to Sunday 9 am – 3 pm
May to August,  Monday to Saturday 9 am – 6 pm,  Sunday 9 am – 4 pm

Location

The Museum of Papermaking
ul. Kłodzka 42,
57-340 Duszniki Zdrój

More Information

The solo exhibition by Maria Matyja-Rozpara titled "Edge” takes place in The Museum of Papermaking in Duszniki Zdrój. The titled "Edge" - the word denotes an edge, the end of something, and necessary contact with something else. It is an exceptionally rich name for the exhibition, suggesting but not imposing, assuming respect for the viewer and inviting them to engage in independent individual interpretation of the presented objects.

The exhibition takes place in the institution in Duszniki for a reason, as the primary material utilized by Maria Matyja-Rozpara is paper. Despite being so common in everyday life, paper mainly serves utilitarian functions, often causing us to overlook its uniqueness. Similarly, in the traditional, common perception of artistic techniques, paper was not considered a noble material like precious wood or canvas. We usually don't reflect on the fact that paper can be a derivative of these materials.

However, paper often serves as both a medium and a material testament to ideas, sometimes the most important ones that determine the order of the world. As an organic substance, it contains the structure of the world encoded in every tiny particle. In this exhibition, paper serves as both a plastic material and an ideological conveyance, though not directly presented as a written record. The exhibition largely resonates with the symbolism of Christianity, bearing witness to its experiences while engaging in a dialogue with its traditional forms and attempting to translate them into a new, inclusive language.

Opening Hours

Wednesday to Saturday, 11 am to 5 pm

Location

CityScape Community ArtSpace Gallery
335 Lonsdale Ave
North Vancouver

More Information

Paper can evoke feelings of love, sadness, excitement, and longing. It can transport you to a memory, a time, or a place. Even as technology advances and more things become paperless, there is a tactility, permanence, and transformation that can happen with actual paper.

Whether it is sculptured, cut, altered, molded, mixed, dyed, and more, seventeen contemporary artists are exploring paper in new ways.

Within each artwork themes of grief, contemporary culture, reflection of daily moments, growth, pattern symbolism, and more are explored, but what unifies them all is simply the source: paper!

This exhibit invites visitors to explore the joy and wonder of paper.

Art| Landscape | Westerwolde

Artists have been inviting people for centuries to see our country through their eyes, in beauty, wonder and sometimes confusion. The MOW | Museum Westerwolde has been collecting works of art with a connection to its own region for half a century, from realistic to abstract and from old to new. Older works show us a world that we sometimes barely recognize, with agricultural workers in the fields, dirt roads and horse and cart. Newer works play with the structures and colors of the land or with special properties such as the wind that gains strength over the vast land. Recently, concerns about a rapidly changing environment have been creeping into work.

Historical and contemporary art
In this exhibition, the museum combines (some of it historical) pieces from its own collection and those of others with works by contemporary artists. More than 160 (!) artists responded to a call for contemporary artists to be inspired by the Westerwold countryside. The works (all 40 x 40 cm) will show a continuous mosaic on the walls of the museum.

Curated individual and group presentations will display a diverse range of works on and with paper in the atrium of the Deutsche Telekom Hauptstadtrepräsentanz, centrally located at Gendarmenmarkt in Berlin-Mitte.
The medium of paper encourages experimentation and the realization of ideas while minimizing the risk of huge material costs. It creates a barrier-free approach, not only for artists, but also for those who want to buy their first or tenth work of art. For these reasons, paper is at the heart of our art fair concept, becoming the playground of artistic expressions across all positions. The floorplan is tailor-made for even the most sensitive exhibits.

More Information

As part of the Main-Kinzig Fulda 2024 cultural summer, the Kleinsassen art station is presenting masterpieces made of paper in its exhibition halls: cut, folded and moulded.

What this material can withstand and achieve in terms of design never ceases to amaze. For a long time - until the end of the 19th century - paper served mainly as a carrier of information and was used for drawing, watercolouring and printing. Silhouettes and folding techniques had a long tradition in China and Japan and became increasingly popular in Europe. It was only later, and especially since the 1960s, that artists discovered paper as an independent artistic medium for their work.

Paper is a very pliable material that can be reached almost anywhere: flexible, light and sometimes surprisingly stable, voluminous through crumpling, creasing, folding and "moulding". There are many variations in thickness and surface texture, depending on the fibres used and the manufacturing process. Paper can be embossed and even sculpted. Works of art with incredibly narrow webs are created - torn or cut, with realistic depictions or in a reduced, conceptual design language. Artful folding and creasing create reliefs, and life-size figures can be formed from delicate Japanese papers. Some artists use new paper, others "recycle" used or printed paper. A particular attraction for some artists is that they produce their own paper and can experiment in detail, from preparing the fibre pulp to drawing and designing. Paper can be made transparent, relief-like or even fully sculptural, coloured with individual pigments and penetrated in a painterly way in pulp painting.
