More Information

'Paper Parcel Chair' and 'Paper Parcel Table' were acquired by CODA Museum in Apeldoorn and are now exhibited for one year in their standaard collection presentation in their space 'De Verdieping'. 

About the Work: ‘Paper Parcel Chair’ and ‘Paper Parcel Table’ are the first two pieces in the series ‘Paper Parcels from the Past’, made by Emma Sebregts. The collection continues to grow. Every piece represents an object or piece of architecture from the homes in Sebregts’s past. The furniture and walls are things that she has carried with her and exchanged with others in the multiple homelands she has had. The temporality of her stay made her aware that homes and furniture are shared objects in the long term. Collecting the stories of the inhabitants they go through. The table and chair casts where taken from discarded furniture that Sebregts dragged in from the streets to furnish her house in her student times. A favorite way for Sebregts to furnish her house in those days was by reupholstering found furniture, changing the skin but keeping the bones. The skin shed by the furniture correlates with the empty skin displayed by the paper casts.

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.

From the Field

United States

Event Dates

The exhibition is opened from April 24, 2024 until July 07, 2024.

Artist

John Wittenberg John Wittenberg

Opening Hours

Opening: Saturday May 18, 2024, 4 pm - 6 pm
Tuesday and Thursday 10 am - 2 pm
Or: by Appointment 

Location

The  Gallery at Holy Trinity Episcopal Church
768 Main St, Greenport, NY 11944

More Information

"John Wittenberg has his North Fork studio in a secluded rural section of Southold, still amidst farm fields and not far from rocky cliffs overlooking the sandy beach of Long Island Sound. This natural environment both inspires his art and provides, in part, its raw materials. Handmade paper establishes a unifying ground, as found elements, from minerals and rocks to feathers and leaves, conjoin thereon, or within, creating an evocative cross between relief sculpture and collage." 

The artist states: “My eye is drawn to the physical world, how light and shadow play on surfaces, the way nature cycles between growth, decay, and renewal. I observe the beauty of imperfections, how objects change in varying light, the nexus where different surfaces meet.”

More Information

Current approaches and innovative projects are presented digitally on the Paper Future Lab homepage. They will be given a voice and a visibility. We create synergies and convey courageous approaches. Together we encourage sustainable change. The various action locations in Berlin can be seen on the interactive city map. In addition, you can share suggestions or content yourself in our city laboratory forum and submit your future-oriented ideas.

Tanja Major's handmade mushroom paper works, also known as 'Mykobütten', represent an innovative way of papermaking as they are made almost entirely from mushrooms and can therefore be considered compostable or sustainable art that can be returned to nature.
The creation of handmade artworks from mushrooms and plant pulp, which not only represent paper but also act as carriers of our stories and visions, is the result of a complex process based on scientific principles and creative application. These works are a tribute to the beauty of nature, the art of craftsmanship and the immeasurable creativity of the human spirit.

Michael Velliquette: The I in Sight

United States

Event Dates

The exhibition is opened from May 03, 2024 until June 29, 2024.

Artist

Michael Velliquette Michael Velliquette

Opening Hours

Tuesday to Saturday 11 am - 5 pm
Opening reception, Friday, May 3, 6-8pm

Location

David Shelton Gallery
4411 Montrose Blvd. Suite B
Houston, TX 77006

More Information

Michael Velliquette is an artist renowned for his intricately crafted works in the medium of paper. His works are exquisitely crafted by cutting, rolling, folding, and layering paper into complex dimensional tableaux. Their dazzling degree of texture and detail display a mastery of skill he has developed over the past two decades working with the medium. His newest monochromatic sculptural constructions are built up in shallow relief with gold metallic paper imbuing them with a glimmering sheen and which make them appear from certain aspects self-illuminating. In this new series, Velliquette also revisits a lexicon of imagery used in his earlier work, including eye and hand motifs, to represent sensory experiences such as sight and touch, as well as more contemplative phenomena such as seeing and feeling. These will be presented with his first series of free-standing metal sculptures constructed in corresponding shapes and motifs.

Event Dates

Artist

Alexandra Deutsch Alexandra Deutsch

Opening Hours

Tuesday to Sunday 1 pm - 6 pm 

Location

Kunststation Kleinsassen
An der Milseburg 2
36145 Hofbieber-Kleinsassen
0049 6657 8002

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.

Low Tide

Mexico

Event Dates

The exhibition is opened from May 24, 2024 until July 21, 2024.

Artist

Marie Sol Payro Marie Sol Payro

Opening Hours

Tuesday to Sunday 10 am - 6 pm
Closed Monday

Location

Centro Cultural de Coatepec
Jimenez del Campillo 4
Coatepec, Veracruz

More Information

Marie Sol Payro has worked many years in the processes of handmade paper, tracing of its living history with the people of Mexico who preserve their legacy in the mountains of the northern Sierra of Puebla. Handmade paper, plant fibers, natural dyes, earth or forest elements are the protagonists of the pieces.

Collaborating in workshops and putting hands into the fiber, both to make leaves and to create pieces and experimenting with local fibers, Marie has been discovering its symbology, its direct relationship with the cultures and mountains that have sheltered it and provided its fibers.

From ritual and clothing in the pre-Columbian era, the support of images and texts, as well as its textile dimension where, Marie has begun to explore paper as a textile here in. The low tide appears in dialogue with some threads of wool, allowing us to enter where the waters in complicity with the moon allow us to see traces, stitches, vestiges, marks of a certain space-time.


Around the Circle

France

Event Dates

The exhibition is opened from May 25, 2024 until June 30, 2024.

Artist

Catherine Simoneau Pestel Catherine Simoneau Pestel

Opening Hours

Tuesday to Sunday 2 pm - 7 pm

Location

Galerie "A l'Ecu de France"
1, rue Robert Cahen
78220 Viroflay

More Information

"Paper is the material that I like to use, whether it is made in the High Plateaux of Nepal, or worn, abandoned and found at Emmaüs. It is then the pleasure of discovering old rolls of wallpaper which, by cutting or tearing, become the supports for my sculptures and delicate creations confined in frames. It is the collection of old books, pages of abandoned stories that I cut out and roll up like cocoons of words keeping their mystery, suspended by wires in metal structures, the beginnings of a metamorphosis allowing me to approach the realization of object books.
My work explores the symbolism of the circle, in search of movement, change, the momentum of a new balance, the evolving nature of life." – Catherine Simoneau Pestel

Maine Museum of Photographic Arts
15 Middle St.
Portland, Maine 04101

More Information

Karen Olson presents a selection of her series "Language of the Heart" at the group show "In the Making" at the Maine Museum of Photographic Arts in Portland, Maine. 

In the Making is a provocative exhibition that illustrates where the photographic medium is today. There are sculptures, camera-less works, multimedia constructions, collaborative pieces and an installation. Our hope is that viewers will delight in the craftsmanship, the use of line/drawing throughout, and the variety of alternative processes. The themes will be familiar: family, conservation, art for art’s sake and the intuitive exploration of photography. To say this is an exciting exhibit would be to understate our enthusiasm about it. Come and bring people with you who want to delve into and learn more about contemporary artists and works.

Eternal Paper

Denmark

Event Dates

The exhibition is opened from July 13, 2024 until August 11, 2024.

Artist

Anne Vilsboell Anne Vilsboell

Opening Hours

Daily 11 am - 4 pm

Location

The Paper Academy
Stæremosen 8
3250 Gilleleje

More Information

In the summer of 2024, The Paper Academy, Denmark, welcomes you to the exhibition Eternal Paper, where 20 international artists, mainly from the USA, present  artworks made with paper. The exhibition is curated by Helen Frerick, American artist, curator and founder of the art institution Pyramid Atlantic, Maryland, USA.

Eternal Paper was exhibited at the University of Maryland Global Campus, USA, from October 2023 to May 2024 and can now be experienced in the Paper Academy’s gallery in Gilleleje in a slightly different form.

Artists who have worked for many years with handmade paper, nature's fibers and water, to express themselves through art, have harboured experience and expertise within themselves and understand that they, as temporary containers of this knowledge, have a responsibility to provide this on to future generations. Implicit in their work is something larger: a historical organism of research, travel, collaboration and exchange that preserves paper forever.

 A catalogue has been published in connection with the exhibition.
