ABOUT:
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.

Berry Meyer

Berry Meyer is a self-diagnosed paper hedonist, born in Namibia, educated in South Africa and recently relocated to the Netherlands. Through an interest sparked by a hobby of collecting various ephemera, Berry accumulated, dissected and sorted thousands of postage stamps according to their colour hues and themes. Over the last few months she cut out and organized these stamps according to their representation of women, men, children, flora, fauna, landscapes, religious iconography and art. On closer inspection it became apparent that the state visually represents its subjects on stamps and various other found media in a particular way and thereby legitimizes certain ways of life. By highlighting the societal conventions in imagery found on stamps, old South-African advertisements and an eclectic range of other media, she attempted to inscribe alternate narratives in visual representation through the intertextuality of media.

By dissecting stamps and reassembling them to represent imagined histories, the process of collage naturally presented opportunities to merge themes of time, race, sexuality, popular culture and printed media. Therefore, by using collage as a tool rather than a medium she was able to create parodies of visual representations on issues such as patriarchy, nationalism and religion, by representing whom the state ignores and thus revealing the constitutive other produced by the state.

Selected Exhibitions: 2016 – Oracle, group exhibition at Salon91; Paper Is You III, group exhibition at Salon91. 2014 – Golden Haze group show at Salon91; Paper Is You II, group exhibition at Salon91.
