COLLAGE ON VIEW
Paper Cuts: An International Collage Exchange with Axelle Kieffer
at The Main Gallery at Sulphur Studios in Savannah, Georgia, USA
1 September-21 October 2023
“Paper Cuts: An International Collage Exchange with Axelle Kieffer” features over thirty artists from around the world: from Savannah, Georgia in the Southeastern US to Ireland, Germany, France, the Netherlands, Spain, Austria, Canada, Poland, Belgium, Czech Republic and South Africa.
Artist and exhibition curator Axelle Kieffer collaborated on over 200 collages since 2019, mostly through the postal service. These art exchanges challenge the collaborating artists to interpret, expand upon, or completely change the initial ideas of what the final work will look like. During the process, a long-distance dialogue between two (or more) artists is created, where they encounter playful and surprising reactions to their contributions, pushing them out of their comfort zone. These works include imagery harvested from all sorts of ephemera: postcards, magazines, recycled images, photographs, and any material the collage artist may have on hand.
A catalogue is available for purchase.
