“Working with a material as simple as paper means that if you want to push the envelope, then you need to push your brain to think outside the box. That can be as frustrating as it can be exciting. This process has taught me that, like people, paper cannot be underestimated in terms of the hidden potential that lies within it.” –Elsa Mora
Paper Weight is Elsa Mora’s latest exhibition of painstaking works made solely of paper and glue. First exhibited at the Jordan Schnitzer Museum of Art in Eugene, Oregon, Mora’s 2D and 3D pieces presented in this exhibition are inspired by the cognitive faculties that form the mind: consciousness, perception, thinking, judgment, language, and memory.
