NEW EXHIBITION - 2022 Paper Biennial - Transition - The Cube Universe (Netherlands) June 26, 2022 - November 13, 2022. Featuring IAPMA Member Valentin Bakardjiev (@legrandbleuamsterdam @valentinbakardjiev) Opening Hours Tuesday to Sunday 11 am - 5 pm Closed Monday Location Museum Rijswijk Herenstraat 67 2282 BR Rijswijk For many years, Valentin Bakardjiev has been working on his project, Le Grand Bleu. Applying ancient craft techniques he takes them to a fine art level. He applies the Shibori technique with Indigo and ink on different papers including 300 year-old handmade Japanese papers, other washi, calligraphy, and recycled papers. He layers many semi-transparent papers, exploring the possibility of creating the deepest blue as symbol of an endless sky and the deepest ocean. The Cube Universe is the first interactive installation that Valentin Bakardjiev developed under this research. He gives the viewers chance to feel that they can have the universe in their hands and to see the problems around us in different perspectives. Having The Cube Universe literally in your hands is to understand how responsibility acting as a small individual is important to influence the future. “The ancient crafts I use come from an era when our planet was still clean. I’m putting my work in a new context of sustainability and multidisciplinary art.” #cube #cubeuniverse #shibori #indigo #washi #oceanblue #caligraphy #recycledpaper #iapmamember

Renée Lavaillante and Geneviève Rocher, artists with distinct practices, come together for a time to explore the ephemeral material of citrus paper. Curator : Myriam Bariault Fortin. The common desire of the artists is to explore light, lines, and colors on glass walls. Because of the presence of glass wall divisions and the abundance of large windows, the Science Library, at the Science Complex on the MIL Campus of the Université de Montréal, is a perfect place to present these works that delicately dialogue with the specificities of this place. #light #iapmamembers #color #citruspaper #fruitsexquis

IAPMA committee member Heather Matthew enjoyed an artist’s residency in Iceland last month. Here’s her story ….. #IAPMA #paper #paperart #papermaking #paperresidency #iapmamember #iceland

Heather Matthew is an Australian artist and papermaker who joined us at the factory in May. Here she explored a project she called Stone Stories, about stones as life forms which hold the stories of millennia."It was great to be able to stay focused on one theme without distractions and explore it at this artist residency through using a variety of paper and print mediums and even experimenting with ceramics. Stodvarfjördur is an amazing landscape where the mountains dominate the skyline. I discovered that the townsfolk love stones as well and collect them from the mountains and fjord shorelines to carefully place in their gardens. These appear as benevolent nature spirits, like additional family and community members, each with their own distinctive form and presence. I knew about Petra’s stone museum but was astonished at her story of climbing the mountains with her children and grandchildren to bring home these jewelled treasures and share her love of stones and nature with others."

They make us feel the rustle of the envelope, the layers of paper, the suspended dresses, then the murmur of the gesture and the line. They sculpt fragments of time that lull us into the love and fragility of things. From their material, they extract a story, a memory, which they whisper to us through the textures and the breath of words. #fragilityofthings #memory #paper #paperart #iapmamember #sculpterlesmots #formandcontent

NEW WORKSHOP - Experimental Paper Sculpture (USA) August 20, 2022 - August 21, 2022. IAPMA Member Michelle Wilson (@michellewilsonprojects) will teach this upcoming class - for any student interested in using handmade paper to create sculptural forms with armatures. Students will learn building methods for armatures and ways to wrap and dip their armatures in handmade paper pulp prepared in a way that is called "high shrinkage". In this method, paper pulp has been beaten for a long period of time to absorb a large amount of water, and dramatic transformations can occur when the form dries. Papermaking is a wet process, please wear clothing and shoes that can get wet. Papermaking also involves some lifting and arm movements.

NEW WORKSHOP - NICOLE DONNELLY - WORKING WITH ARMATURE (United States) July 30, 2022 -July 31, 2022. Instructor: Nicole Donnelly In this two day IN PERSON workshop, participants will work with high-shrinkage flax and abaca pulps, learning basic sheet forming, methods for inclusions, and stretching sheets over constructed armatures. Flax and abaca fibers can make extremely thin, strong, and translucent sheets of paper. These are ideal for embedding two-dimensional imagery but are also prized for their ability to shrink as they dry, creating a taut, smooth surface when the paper is applied over an armature. Students will form two-dimensional sheets of paper and will be guided through constructing basic armatures of their own design. Participants are encouraged to bring their ideas as well as their own materials to incorporate. Please see the website for details such as recommended supplies and instructor bio. Registration deadline: July 15, 2022 Workshop from 10 am - 4 pm on both days.

NEW EXHIBITIONS - OBJEKTERNE BAG OS - The Objects Behind Us (Denmark) May 30, 2022 - June 25, 2022. Featuring IAPMA Member Jytte Rasmussen and other Artists Opening Reception May 27, 2022, 4 - 7 pm Exhibition opening hours: Thursday to Saturday 10 am - 5 pm Location Gallery TESE, Vestergade 49, 8000 Aarhus C In the group exhibition "The Objects Behind Us", 11 artists contribute to a joint exhibition about materiality and the materiality of organisms. The exhibition consists of a number of very different works, which on everyone's own way speak into this theme, both through the materials from which the works are created including paper, clay, wood, oil and stone, and the motives from where objects and individuals are equated. In the selection of the works, emphasis is placed on the contrasts so that the works move from the mild and minimalistic to the raw and expressive, from the light to the dark and back again. #sculpture #papersculpture #iapmamember #armature #materiality #materialitymatters #objectsbehind #formandconcept #lightanddark

WASSER STEIN PAPIER
WATER STONE  PAPER                  
ACQUA PIETRA CARTA

Kathrin Biffi-Frey,(Switzerland), Bara Lehmann-Schulz (Germany)
Kerber Verlag, Contemporary Art
ISBN:         978-3-7356-0133-9

28,00 Euro  (34,80 CHF)

The IAPMA menbers Bara Lehmann-Schulz and Kathrin Biffi-Frey have been using Paper for many years, to express and shape objects, images and installations. In 2005 – 2013 they created temporary installations in the Maggia river bed, in Swiss Tessin, using Paper and a few aids. This experimental work within a landscape shaped by glacial erosion used paper, light, and the weather, as well as standing and flowing water, and has characterised this project. It is these simultaneously transient and eternal, soft and hard, static and moving elements that make their work so fascinating.

The book is available via book stores or from the authors (according to prior agreement)

Bridge made from Paper

May 26, 2015 • 08:35 UTC

Of Interest

No glue. No cables. No steel reinforcements. The only thing keeping this bridge intact is, well, physics.
If you happened to be strolling across the Grisedale Valley—a ridiculously picturesque piece of land in Cumbria—over the past two weeks, you probably saw what looks like something out of a Monument Valley fever dream. A blindingly bright red bridge spanning a thin creek, made of nothing except thousands of sheets of paper. About 22,000 sheets, according to The Chronicle.
It’s called PaperBridge, and it’s the work of a UK artist named Steve Messam, who was commissioned by the area’s culture council to install it this spring.

Limp bindings from Tallinn

May 02, 2014 • 11:19 UTC

Market

The Tallinn City Archives have a voluminous collection of limp bindings in long-stitch, chain-stitch and tacketing. This technique was used mainly when binding simple bands for daily use, such as registers, accounts and notes but has also occurred in more important works. In the book, "Limp Bindings from Tallinn", eight of the bands are presented together with thorough technical descriptions. Hopefully, you will be inspired to develop new variations.
The book, in offset print, is printed in 600 copies on Multidesign Original white 150-gram paper and has a protective cover in Curious Touch, 250 grams. The design of the 48-page book is inspired by medieval writings and is illustrated by artist Jordi Arkö.
The book can be ordered by my mail monica@langwe.se I will then give instruction how to pay via PayPal.
The price of the book is $ 50 including postage, any import fees will be paid by the customer.
