What does the line between reality and fiction look like? Can an exhibition be a life-sized paper model of itself? Whose name didn’t make the press release? And if it sounds good on paper, where is the paper?
These enigmatic questions locate Paper Exhibition at the periphery of the known—between paper architecture and new pages of old books. The exhibition renders the open space of the gallery as a labyrinth of folds, holes and gaps through which an exchange between the literal and the literary can happen.
The exhibition includes works and performances, in order of disappearance, by Julieta Aranda, Olivier Babin, Fia Backström, Judith Braun, Egle Budvytyte, Alex Cecchetti, Mariana Castillo Deball, Dexter Sinister, Gintaras Didziapetris, Jonah Freeman, Aurelien Froment, Dora Garcia, Mario Garcia Torres, Mark Geffriaud, Loris Gréaud, Morten Norbye Halvorsen, Will Holder, Lea Lagasse, Pierre Leguillon, Gabriel Lester, Marcos Lutyens, Benoit Maire, Nicholas Matranga, John Menick, Melvin Moti, Trong Gia Nguyen, Job Piston, Michael Portnoy & Vita Zaman, Pratchaya Phinthong, Conny Purtill, Adam Putnam, Amy Robinson, Joe Scanlan, Gareth Spor, Donelle Woolford, and Joe Zane.
