The Power of Paper

BY FRANK BÖLTER
@ VOL 28 ON JUL 06, 2016

“I started to fold the paper boat and somehow I travelled around the world.”

In The Power of Paper from PechaKucha Night Glasgow Vol. 28 Frank Bölter talks about his practice as an artist working with paper as a material to build boats and houses.

He began using his work to challenge expectations both inside and outside the academic art world while a student at the Münster Academy of Art from 1998 to 2003. Boelter’s projects are distinguished equally by their powerful poetic imagery and by the precision of their execution, often carried out under the difficult conditions of the public sphere and galvanising the public into action.

This was "Presentation of the Day" on June 25th, 2017.
