Synopsis

Opening times: Tue-Fri 12-5pm; Sat & Sun 11am -4pm;
Closed Monday


The O3 Gallery presents One Thousand Cranes: An Exhibition of Contemporary Paper Making featuring a selection of the UK’s leading artists currently working in the medium of paper. This group exhibition showcases some of the very best contemporary paper-cutting, origami and kirigami.

Examining the various methods and techniques, both traditional and innovative which characterise paper art, this exhibition aims to explore the sculptural and graphic possibilities of paper whilst playfully reimagining the conventional uses of the medium as a marked surface such as in the printed word or cartography. Taking our title from the belief that the folding of one thousand origami cranes bestows eternal good luck on the folder, this exhibition will offer new perspectives on paper-making.

The exhibiting artists include Andersen M Studio, Louisa Boyd, Anine Bosenberg, Kate Hipkiss, Anna Howarth, Astrid Jaekel, Davy and Kristin McGuire, Su Owen, Brigitte Parusel and Callum Russell.
 
One Thousand Cranes opens to the public on Saturday 5th April and runs until Monday 27th April 2014. Many of the artworks will be available to buy.
