CODA Museum puts on grand display - CODA Paper Art 2015
Paper and cardboard are relatively simple and fairly cheap materials that, combined with traditional and modern techniques and the artist’s inspiration, show their endless possibilities and expressive power in staggering and dynamic but sometimes also moving and subtle ways. After a highly successful edition in 2013, CODA Museum Apeldoorn presents CODA Paper Art 2015, an exhibition that provides ample space – both literally and figuratively – for the installations, spatial works and specially selected jewellery of 36 artists from the Netherlands and abroad whose work is centred around paper and cardboard.

The mysterious tree-patterned mask Behind the Gates by American artist Phillip Valdez does not only grace the poster of this edition of Paper Art, but is also part of this exhibition, along with a number of other masks representing death. Valdez has also made a new mask for CODA Paper Art 2015.

Especially for CODA Paper Art, Indian artist Himanshu Agrawal, known for the immense paper artworks he made for the ad campaigns of brands like Canon, Toyota and Audi, has created a 20-foot deer – iconic for the Veluwe – that greets people in CODA Museum’s entrance hall. British-Irish artist Rogan Brown makes refined artworks no taller than a hand and are paper representations of bacteria and microbes that are grown in Petri dishes. Dutch artist Berdien Nieuwenhuizen has also created a new piece exclusively for CODA Paper Art 2015. Over the entrance of CODA Library, she will mount the wings of Icarus. This monumental installation represents human hubris as featured in the Greek myth about Daedalus and his son Icarus.
