Inside the Fibre works with Paper by Seven Contemporary Artists.

Paper is an ancient medium for visual art. From Jain manuscript to till now many traditions/artists negotiated paper as a support or surface to produce an incredible range of art works. In the past most of the creative outputs took the form and format of painting but in the recent times artists have reinvented the material itself to create a different range of expressions and languages. Not only in the two dimensional form anymore but paper on contemporary art is taking the shape of three dimensional sculptures as well! More often than not the material itself becomes the potential content.

This present show ‘Inside the Fibre’ mainly highlighted those artists whose works are mainly based on paper in different form utilizing it's different possibilities. For example, weaving with paper, needling in paper, creating different forms with the different fibres and even with the processing of paper mache executing three dimensional forms.

Artists such as Arpita Akhanda, Ghanashyam Latua, Kalpana Vishwas, Kaushik Halder, Mrinmoyee Deb, Promiti Hossain, Ruma Choudhury are showcasing there works which unfold and exploit the nascent stories hidden inside the fibres of papers. Experimental in nature and determined in their respective goals all the artists here also reflect their individual predilections and concerns in the most innovative ways.
