An exhibition of paper jewelry and drawings by Kiff Slemmons executed during her residencies at Taller Arte Papel of Oaxaca. This long-standing partnership has taken Slemmons’s work into new realms of form and materiality. The exhibition title references how when Slemmons creates a body of work, she views the entire exhibition as forming one object in its totality.

Slemmons, widely-acclaimed for her metal-based jewelry practice, has transferred her decades-long experience and understanding of jewelry’s potential to paper. The results yield formal explorations into the potential of abstraction, color, pattern, and structure.

By working with the Taller, Slemmons is invigorating a local renewable resource, i.e. paper, while activating the local artisans to generate new forms of creative capital that are sustainable as well. This cross-pollination surpasses geographic and cultural borders.
