paper artist: stefan diez

1m3 is an exhibition as an idea of an exhibition...
it doesn’t propose anything but ideas of objects. they are all made of paper and glue, cardboard and tape, painted or not...we focused on the primitive and elementary essence of paper...these objects pretend to be what they are not...

currently on display at la chaufferie, 1m3 highlights the stage of the mock-up process just before a prototype is required, and in its presentation here projects a hint of what may become.
