boots to Bulgaria

These two paper boots, Hobo and Junior, have (hopefully!) arrived safely in Sofia, Bulgaria, to take part in the Sofia Paper Art Biennial, from today, April 24th – June 2nd. 

I wish I had the possibility to go to Bulgaria myself – I've never been there – but this time it's not possible, I'm loaded with work. The Sofia Paper Art Biennial is part of the SOFIA PAPER ART FEST 2013, with activities all around Sofia, so there's a lot going on these coming weeks. There will be exhibitions showing all sizes of paper art in 2D and 3D organized in galleries, museums and open spaces, workshops, lectures, a paper theatre etc

It was a delicate business to package these two "hairy" pieces... They hardly weigh anything, but the paper fringes are a bit brittle. I used lots of bubble wrap and tissue paper and hope they arrive there and back home again in the same shape as when I sent them...

Below you can watch a very short film I made of the making of the Hobo boots. They are also participating in Nordic Art Insight, a new Nordic art prize that focuses on sustainable consumption. I had fun making it – hope you enjoy it!

  2. Hello! I follow your blog with interest for not that long. I can't believe your piece of art could be seen here, in Bulgaria! I'm always very busy in spring with different projects, but if it happens to spend a day or two at Sofia Paper Art Fest, I'll definitely go to see your lovely boots!:)

  3. Oh vad kul, härligt att få vara med på sådant!!!

    Ja jättekul Lena, synd bara att inte kunna vara på plats. En annan gång :)

  5. Thank you Natascha - glad you like them!
