Occupy Space presents 'The Wood between the Worlds' an exhibition of works from contemporary artists using paper as a fundamental material in their practice.
Through both invitation and an open submission call, artists working in sculpture, printing, collage, painting and mixed media explore the transformative quality of paper.
The Wood between the Worlds as described in the writing of C.S Lewis is a transitional space between alternate realities. Upon arrival in the Wood you are susceptible to amnesia, but once you have been transported there, other Worlds are accessible through pools of water.
The potential to see different versions of the World we inhabit seems an absurd reference in relation to artists using paper, but it is that sense of possibility and escapism that informed the selection of work.
