About the exhibition

Time to meet the beauty of paper with art.
From December 7, 2017, to May 27, 2018, Daelim Museum will present an exhibition featuring delicate sensations of artists from around the world and the process of expanding paper, an analogical material, into an emotional medium. <Paper, Present> We hold. In this exhibition, artists from 10 teams who are active in various fields, focus on the original properties of paper in their respective fields, introducing works that show the pure beauty of the material itself.

This exhibition consists of seven spaces. This space is based on the wondrous scenes of nature, the moment when ordinary everyday life comes unfamiliar, once in a lifetime and memories. In each space, you can see the writings of the writer ‘OhBam Lee Jeonghyeon(오밤 이정현)’. This phrase will comfort your mind.

First, you can see the work of “Richard Sweeney” in the paper art called Gaudí. The characteristic of this work is that it uses material properties without using a machine to create a free form from object to architectural structure. You can see large and small pieces of paper reminiscent of a starlight sparkling in a serene dawn.

Second, it is the work of “Tahiti Pehrson” famous for hand cutting. This work contains sunshine that shines brightly.

Third, the design studio “Atelier oi” used various elements such as light, color, and movement to capture the senses of the East and the West. It is a work that made you feel the calm wind.

The fourth space is composed of “Studio Job”, “TORAFU ARCHITECTS”, “Tord Boontje” and “Jule Waibel”. This space is composed of paper, other materials, and products and furniture, creating a scene in which paper permeates into everyday scenery.

Fifth, the French designer “Jim&Jou” has been responsible for the visuals of the intense show-window of luxury brands such as Hermes.

Sixth, you can see the work of the design studio “Wanda Barcelona”, which is responsible for show-window and showrooms of famous brands such as Dior, COMME des GARÇONS, and Colette. This space expresses a glorious fairytale world with paper.

Finally, the Korean design group “Maum Studio”, which attracts attention with its young senses, creates a walkway full of pink light paper reeds, giving the audience a pleasure.

White paper symbolizes infinite possibilities. Paper has been the starting point of creation in a wide range of fields, from simple media to ideas for artists. <Paper, Present: A Gift for You> presents an extraordinary time to meet the arts by putting emotion on paper. This exhibition will give you a variety of experiences on paper and make you feel old feelings. Elements of emotion such as natural elements such as wind, starlight, sunlight, memory, and irritability are combined with space.
