Within / Without presents work from 2014–2015 c3:initiative and Pulp & Deckle Papermaking Residency artists Pat Boas, Bukola Koiki, Palmarin Merges, and Mami Takahashi. Culminating from their experiences in the Pulp & Deckle studio, each artist utilized handmade paper as a medium to create new works that present ideas central to their art practice. Their varied approaches result in distinct, yet related artworks. Within / Without considers the boundaries of forms and spaces in which we construct identity, create culture, and perform ritual. Investigations of materiality, language, collective memory, and the public/private are presented in sculptural installations, wall works, and performance.
