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

Caithness artist, Joanne B Kaar has been inspired by events reported in the John O’Groat Journal 100 years ago, when daring aviators, Harry G Hawker and Commander K Mackenzie Grieve, left St. John’s Newfoundland, attempting to cross the Atlantic non-stop. 
Engine problems resulted in them ditching in the Atlantic. Rescued, they were brought to Scrabster, Caithness, in the north of Scotland,  where a crowd had gathered to welcome them. They were later decorated with the Cross of the Royal Air Force.

In celebration of these aviators and the warm reception they received, we are connecting with Newfoundland again! For news and updates of paper aeroplane exchange events organised near you during 2019, visit the website of participating organisations:

Heavily rooted in Carmichael’s beliefs on traditionalism and classical modes of artistic expression, Carmichael himself was very much invested in contemporary artistic styles having been inspired by his native Canadian surroundings.

Crafting Conversations: Paper Makers respond to Climate Change

United States

Event Dates

The exhibition is opened from October 01, 2019 until January 15, 2020.

Artist

Katy DeMent, Albert Pantone, Treewhisperisrs

Opening Hours

Opened daily 6 am- 12 pm

Location

Steel Tower "T" Station (at Pittsburgh mass transit light rail station) 
Steel Tower" T "station

More Information

Curators, Katy DeMent (paper maker) and Ann Rosenthal ( print maker, illustrator) wanted to take an expansive view of climate change — that it is an opportunity to be and act in a world that is in relationship with one another and with nature. We have done this by demonstrating how artists are responding to these concerns, highlighting the materials they use to create their work. Not all of our materials and processes “leave no trace,” but all the exhibiting artists are moving in that direction, as our culture and society must also move toward.

How do the artists you’ve worked with for this show deal with their own practices and choices of materials as they affect climate change?
Both Katy DeMent and Albert Pantone reflect their local ecosystems through the reuse of sustainably sourced materials. They harvest invasive plants and grow plant fibers for their papermaking processes, a continuation of work they began years ago out of necessity. By engaging ephemeral materials, nothing is arbitrary and the actual surfaces, as well as the imagery, are referential.

Creatives for Climate (C4C) is a Pittsburgh-based collaborative of artists, designers, architects, climate communicators, climate scientists and climate educators. As part of its mission, C4C produces exhibitions that spark community dialogue around climate change. We were looking for an exhibition venue that would highlight some of the artists in our collaborative and approached Contemporary Craft’s (CC) Director of Exhibitions Kate Lydon.

More Information

Through the Walls: Reflections includes work that Teddy Milder made, or was inspired by two artist residencies in Oaxaca in 2016 and 2018 and the looming threat of a border wall construction. She printed and stitched her photographs on amate and cotton paper she made at Arte Papel Oaxaca in San Augustín Etla. Adding enhancements and embellishments into each image, the artist's stitches were intertwined with paper walls. Inspired by ancient Oaxacan textile and wall patterns of Mitla, Teddy looked for openings, or spaces in between. Three-dimensional paper work and thread drawings invoke passages through the walls.

Paper Art & Design Gallery

More Information

Rocks are the building blocks of the cosmos. They are a crystallization of the natural world. They seem everything that we are not: enduring, solid, immovable. This is the space were Pat Alexander (US) wants to explore.

Wendy Briggs Powell (US) submerges large sheets of paper into dyed water. These “watermarks” are at once both simple and complex and reflect to her a lived emotional experience. Her work connects heart, head and hands while aiming to convey the subtleties and nuances of the human emotional condition.

The works of Anna Bludau-Hary (Germany) are mostly organic-looking objects are bizarre and yet beautiful and mysterious. They play poetically with inside and outside, with light and its shadow.

Faszination Papier - Paper Fascination

In the exhibition "Fascination Paper", Ina Kunz shows works from the Flowers series, in which, like Kathrin Messerschmidt, paper is not the carrier of artistic expression - paper is the means of expression. It offers countless possibilities for advancing into two to three dimensional works. Messerschmidt's expressive faces are the result of the two artists' aim to discover the poetic power of paper as the basic substance of individual expression.
