Every other year CODA Paper Art presents paper art ranging from small works of art, objects and jewellery to life-size installations. While some artists highlight a social or topical theme, others tell a (material) technical story with their work, or highlight the craftsmanship of paper art. The exhibition shows how many different perspectives and dimensions there are in paper art, how boundaries are shifted and how new techniques and digitalisation are used by the makers to realise their work. There is also a renewed appreciation for nature as a source of inspiration and a number of artists react with their work to current events and the large amount of images that we see every day.
The works of art in this exhibition were made by 48 artists from the Netherlands and abroad. CODA Paper Art not only offers space to established artists, but also provides a podium for the work of up-and-coming makers and designers. As in previous editions, a number of artists have created new work especially for this exhibition.
To be seen between 06.06.2021 - 09.01.2022.
During Paper Art, CODA offers an extensive programme of activities in CODA, outdoors and online. Tour de Papier will take you by bike to special places that tell the story of the paper history of the Veluwe. In the exhibition you will discover eight works of art through the eyes of visitors. In CODA Atelier a new work of art will be created together during the exhibition: an ever-growing work of art by, for and with CODA Paper Art visitors. During workshops and master classes, visitors discover new techniques and equipment in CODA ExperienceLab; from bio- and fashion design to laser cutting and 3D printing.
