As a material, paper is singular in its ability to absorb ideas, fragile in its delicacy, and malleable enough to be transformed through any number of techniques. As a universally accessible and daily utilized medium, the blank page is a wonderland for artistic vision and imagination.
To the artists selected for MOO + SCOPE’s Basel edition of Paper View, the two-dimensional surface is something to be metamorphosed into a three-dimensional investigation.
Coaxing the surface through labor-intensive methods such as a crushing, folding, cutting, and suspending–paper becomes a medium through which a subject literally jumps off the page. This is Paper View.
