> DESCRIPTION

 

David Risley Gallery is pleased to announce Paper show, featuring 17 international artists.

Paper Show began as a back to basics. Thinking about the site of the 1st draft, the initial idea, the note on a scrap of paper. The paper itself.

Paper is the common denominator across diverse practices and ideological positions. It is the common material of writers, musicians, architects and artists. It links artists of all disciplines; painting, photography, sculpture, performance. It is a democratic, non-hierarchical material, which cuts across theoretical stances and connects the coldly conceptual with the wildly expressionistic.

The artists here use paper as a considered and essential element within the work, not merely as a convenient support. Several of the works take paper as subject rather than material. Others as a meeting place, a battlefield, a document, a marker of time, a gift.

What began as a back to basics has inevitably become complex.

David Risley Gallery kan med glæde præsentere Paper Show med 17 internationale kunstnere.

Denne udstilling begyndte som et "back to basics." En funderen over det første udkast, den oprindelige idé, en note på en lap papir. Selve papiret.

Papir er fællesnævneren på tværs af forskellige praksisser og ideologier. Det er det mest almindelige materiale for forfattere, musikere, arkitekter og kunstnere. Det forbinder kunstnere af enhver art; maleri, fotografi, skulptur, performance. Det er et demokratisk, uhierarkisk materiale, som skærer på tværs af teoretiske positioner og forbinder det køligt konceptuelle med det vildt ekspressionistiske.

Kunstnerne på udstillingen bruger papir som et overvejet og essentielt element i deres værker, ikke kun som belejlig støtte. Flere af værkerne bruger papiret som genstandsfelt snarere end materiale. Andre som et mødested, en slagmark, et dokument, en tidsmarkør, en gave.

Hvad der begyndte som et "back to basics" er helt uundgåeligt blevet mere komplekst.
