My Paper Sunglasses

from: 07.08.2014   to: 21.08.2014

In this cooperation, the international “My Paper Sunglasses” exhibition project came to Berlin for its fifth installment after four acclaimed exhibitions across South America. Creative director and curator Otavio Santiago invited artists from his current home in Berlin along with those from his former home in Brazil to express their artistic perspective on cutout paper sunglasses offering a glimpse into the unique identities of these artists while seriously complicating the boundaries between art, portraiture and fashion.

The invited artist’s sunglasses art works were presented alongside their self-portraits wearing them.

A performance by Lisa Stertz and an editorial fashion spread by WOW Berlin Mag, both inspired by the project, will be presented for the first time on the opening night.

An ongoing My Paper Sunglasses workshop with curator Otavio Santiago and participating artist Lotta D Heureuse aims to blur the distinction between artist and audience.
