This show is an eye-opener. Titled “Slash: paper under the knife,” the third in a series of exhibitions devoted to the contemporary renaissance of traditional handcrafted materials, the exhibit showcases 52 artists from 16 countries and proves that paper is still a key tool for creativity. This is paper sculpture writ large, on a monumental scale.
My favorite work was done by the artist Andreas Kocks, entitled “Paperwork #935G.” The skill level, and frankly the monomaniacal intensity to do many of these pieces is both fascinating and somewhat incomprehensible.
