Saatchi Gallery – Paper

/ Comments Off on Saatchi Gallery – Paper

Paper, a new exhibition running from 18th June – 29th September at the Saatchi Gallery, explores our society’s changing relationship with this versatile material. In an increasingly ‘paperless’ era, 44 international artists take on the medium to challenge its throwaway status, its power for protest and its links to preconceptions of high and low culture.

Featured among the works at the exhibition are British artist Rebecca Turner’s gravity-defying ball of pulp, Congolese Kura Shomali’s troubling photo snippets and French Éric Manginaud’s life-size drawings of Holocaust victims. Traversing new artistic routes, Paper is a poignant and insightful reflection upon modern society and temporarily whose relevance cannot be ignored.
