Paper is a fantastic material that has inspired artists to create impressive works of art for centuries. The structure, exture, divergent traits and infinite possibilities of paper enchant and inspire. For instance, Australian artist Natasha Frisch uses tracing paper and tape to meticulously construct installations that approximate everyday objects. Designed specifically for one particular space, the fragile and impermanent nature of paper ensures that the installations are temporary constructions, existing only for the lifetime of the exhibition. Inspired by urban folklore, forgotten architecture and the natural world, her objects and installations aim to challenge our reading of the built environment and interrogate the slippage between the real and the unreal. Dutch artist Kim Habers changes the two-dimensional character of paper into large, impressive sculptures that challenge gravity.
