29.04 – 21.5.2016
Paper Is You III is an exclusively paper-based exhibition, which focuses on the diversity and richness of paper as artistic medium. This is the third instalment in a range of exhibitions by the same name which have been hosted by Salon91 since 2011, titled after a poem written by artists Wessel Snyman and Katrine Claassens (who have both exhibited at the gallery). All too often art is is only considered ‘Art’ when it is an oil on canvas piece. Paper Is You challenges this preconception and celebrates the magic of paper-based artwork in all its forms and applications, as well as the incredible ways in which this carefully selected group of artists engage with this age-old medium, working both within and against the confines of the medium. There will be individual works by all of the participating artists on view, as well as collaborative artworks.
