Exhibition Selected Papers II

From 02 July to 28 August the Laduz Museum invites Marie-Thérèse HerbinOdon and Bernadette Chéné to exhibit their works “papers”.

These artists come from a family bound by the same need to create with simple materials from everyday life: newsprint, kraft paper … Papers are cut, folded, woven, wrinkled, braided, carved and transformed into pieces of contemporary art.

In reference to our 2004 exhibition, “From fiber and yarn,” we take our research and discovery of talented artists and recognized by their innovative and amazing works in their design.
