works Breaking Out of the Surface - The Origami Principle in Art | Marta Herford
Feb 24th—Jun 3rd, 2018
Museum for Art, Architecture, Design
Our world consists of folding techniques, bends and crushes. Flower buds, wings, the brain and even DNA offer perfect natural folding templates, which people have been using for centuries as creative media for developments in science and technology. Artists also reflect the origami principle. Unlike classical sculptural techniques they work without adding or exposing anything, solely on the basis of the possibilities of deformation to form spatial constructs. With these threedimensional objects they combine order and chaos, planning and chance. In a totally playful way this gives rise to filigree objects, space occupations or conceptual spaces.
