Biennial 2017

The Association Chaîne de Papier is pleased to have been invited to present the 2017/18 Edition of the Paper Fibre Art Biennial event in the large CRAFT DESIGN HALLS of the NTCRI Campus Nantou County  Taiwan.

Paper & Fibre artists from around the world are invited to propose new works for this exciting Landmark Biennial Project. An environmentally friendly eco sustainable event using natural or recycled materials.

The first exhibition: natural handmade paper or recycled paper;

 The second natural fibre or manmade recycled fibre;

 

 

 

THEME - ECO SUBLIME

 

“At the Copenhagen Summit 2009 it was expressed that the

cultural sector will most effectively lead change in humanity’s

behaviour to a more sustainable future through changes in

production and consumption, as catalysts for introducing new

ideas and concepts for a sustainable future.”

As fibre and paper artists, we have the opportunity to connect intimately with the universe each time we choose fibres or plants to communicate our ideas. We are in the unique position among artists to convey, to educate, and to communicate important issues of today and to propose possible solutions, regarding the threat to our planet our eco systems and our own existence. This threat produced by our modern way of living, a threat that it is almost, but not too late to reverse, yet positive change is still possible.

 

APPEL À PROJET POUR LES ARTISTES TRAVAILLANT AVEC LE PAPIER & LES FIBRES

L’Association Chaîne de Papier a le plaisir d’annoncer l’Edition 2017/18 de la Biennale Art Fibre Papier. Le NTCRI (Institut national de la recherche et le développement de l’artisanat de Taiwan) accueillera l’événement dans ses CRAFT DESIGN HALLS, vastes locaux au Campus Nantou County, Taiwan.

 

Les artistes travaillant avec le papier et les fibres du monde entier sont invités à proposer des oeuvres nouvelles pour cette biennale, événement écologique phare dédié aux matériaux naturels ou recyclés. L’exposition est composée de trois volets :

- le premier volet présente des oeuvres fabriquées à partir de papier artisanal ou de papier recyclé

- le deuxième volet présente des oeuvres fabriquées à partir de fibres naturelles ou de fibres artificielles recyclées

 

 

THÈME - ÉCO SUBLIME

"Lors du Sommet de Copenhague en 2009, il a été mis en avant qu’en tant que catalyseur d’innovations, d’idées et de concepts nouveaux pour un avenir durable, le secteur de la culture sera à même d’induire un changement efficace au niveau du comportement de l’humanité vers un avenir plus durable, grâce aux changements de production et de consommation."

En tant qu’artistes travaillant avec du papier et des fibres, nous avons l’occasion de nous connecter intimement avec l’univers à chaque choix de fibres ou de plantes afin de prolonger nos idées. Parmi les artistes, notre place est unique pour transmettre, enseigner et communiquer autour des enjeux liés à l’environnement. Notre rôle est de proposer des solutions éventuelles pour réduire les menaces sur notre planète, nos écosystèmes, voire notre existence. Les dégâts semblent irréversibles, mais une évolution positive reste possible.
