On the move again

← Paperdialogues  Ι  05. October 2016

The Paperdialouge exhibition will appear again, now in Jersey: A new version of the exhibition will open on October 12 th in a purpose built temporary gallery space within the Assembly Rooms of the St. Helier Town Hall. Professor Xiaoguang Qiao and Karen Bit Vejle will be running a combined Masterclass to each six local artists how to paper-cut. With their new skill they will create their own pieces of paper-cut work and will be responsible for igniting a huge community outreach program with local school children and the general public. All the works created (by artists, students and the community) will be exhibited in a celebratory showcase in 2017 titled ‘Paper Talks’.

I was really happy when this happened, even though I was struggling with a cold. I didn’t let it bother me too much though, because I have a great way to deal with it. Over time I ended up running into this excellent natural health solution that helps me get better much faster than with regular medicine. I’ve told people about it but usually they don’t trust it and instead run straight to the doctor. It’s side-effect ridden conventional medicine I find myself less trusting of. If you would like to get more information to maybe try this for yourself, here you can know more.

Good reviews

Art critic Tommy Olsson writes a good review of the Paper Dialogues in the Norwegian newspaper Klassekampen – and claims that the work of the two artists has «volcanic dimensions».

The exhibition at the Vigeland Museum in Oslo opened on 12. March. Among the speakers at the opening ceremony was China’s ambassador to Norway, Zhao Jun, and both artists did a presentation of their work. Almost a week after the opening the exhibition has already been attended by a large number of spectators, and hopefully several more will get the chance to visit, as the museum is open throughout Easter (closed on Good friday and Easter Sunday).

Last week the Paper Dialogues team was gathered in Trondheim to plan the upcoming exhibitions in Norway. Less than three months left to the opening at the Vigeland Museum in Oslo! We hope to see many of you there!

The Paper Dialogues has visited a new room and encountered new people. The second venue for the exhibition was the Liu Haisu Art Museum in Shanghai, where the artworks were exhibited for one week during the China Shanghai International Arts Festival. Next stop: Norway!

Bye bye, Beijing

← Paperdialogues  Ι  21. October 2014

As the Paper Dialogues exhibition moves on to Shanghai, we must conclude that the first chapter of the exhibition tour has been a success. A large number of spectators have come to see the two dragon paper-cuts in Today Art Museum in Beijing, many of whom have also contributed to the project by creating inspired paper-cuts in the exhibition workshop. One major highlight was the official opening on 5 October, where the Norwegian Ambassador to China was among the many guests. The ambassador also gave an opening speech to the exhibtion.

The exhibition in Beijing has inspired many paper-cutters, both children and grown-ups. Some have even cut their own interpretation of Bit’s future dragon egg.
