On/Out of Paper
4 May - 2 June 2019
Mizuma Gallery has announced ON/OUT OF PAPER, a group exhibition curated by Hermanto Soerjanto, featuring five Southeast Asian artists, including Irfan Hendrian.
Works on paper are often understood as less valuable and less significant as compared to sculptures and works on canvas, as they are commonly perceived as a study or a sketch for something bigger. This view may have been influenced by the Western art culture in which paper is seen only as a temporary medium for artists to organize their thoughts or ideas before they create their artworks.
