Paper Splash

"Paper Splash"
Off/dOCUMENTA (13)
7-9th of June

In a few hours I am on the Eurostar to Paris where I will meet Pia Myrvold. We will be discussing the directions of her future show in London this October at ArtEco Gallery. 
We will then cruise down to Kassel for off/documenta to put up a three day improvised art action:

In “Papers Splash”, Pia MYrvoLD uses urban spaces and public
areas as large scale canvases, placing and creating patterns with
printed paper in various sizes as ephemeral large scale collages,
usually made as a performance using added effects within a time
span of 30 to 60 minutes, according to scale and participating
crew. The surface of “Paper Splash” is then gradually
transformed and eventually destroyed by weather, the passing
public, traffic, and the regular users of the space.
In connection with the opening week of dOCUMENTA (13), Pia
MYrvoLD proposes "Paper Splash" as an unofficial improvised art
action that celebrates non-conformity, fantasy, imagination and
freedom in contemporary art, and reminds us that art often
happens first at the margins of organized culture and in an unofficial

The happening is sponsored by ArtEco Gallery.
