Fascinated by the transformation of plants into paper, Elisabeth Nicollier offers them a second life.
First of all she creates paper from vegetable matter such as stinging nettles, onions, hostas, yuccas, lilies, iris, horsetails, roses or orchids. Inspired by the natural beauty of these plants she then produces artistic objects which are both useful and poetic.
The exhibition is accompanied by a presentation on the origins of paper in China more than 2000 years ago, on its propagation throughout Europe by the Arabs in the Xth century and on the different techniques of traditional production.
