Performing PAPER

Exhibition Dates: 22 June - 3 August 2013

PAPER Director Nicola Smith has selected works and invited artists to respond to the theme of Performing Paper. Live art and performance artists have rejected the art object in favor of using the body as material. Documentation of the performance can become another way for the work to exist, on a flat surface, beyond the act itself. This show mixes different artistic practices, which use a variety of performance actions such as reading, speaking, cutting, pushing, displaying, collecting, and mapping. All of these actions use paper as a point of departure.
