For more than a decade, the IBPFA has been evolving into an important new forum for contemporary paper art. Founded and organized by Jan Fairbairn-Edwards with the Association Chaîne de Papier (originally in France) the Biennial is the result of a unique partnership with the National Taiwan Craft Research and Development Institute (NTCRI).

Building on the success of subsequent exhibitions, the NTCRI carries the event into the next phase with Fairbairn-Edwards' blessings: “The biennial was inspired by the strong traditions from different cultures all over the world and our goal has always been to bring together the traditional and modern by pushing the medium to the forefront of modern art practice.”

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.

The butterfly is a symbol of transformation and the pandemic and climate change have made everyone on the planet transform. 

Monique Martin's dandelions bloom perpetually, mementos of the growing season, springing from concrete and tile, indoors and out. The dandelion is a silent protest that is heard worldwide on sidewalks, in parks and gardens. It abhors monoculture, is open to differences and challenges stereotypes. It can be a symbol for healing from emotional pain, physical injury and surviving through all life’s difficulties as it shows us how to be strong in the face of adversity.
