Kiff Slemmons  « Pride of Paper/Orgullo en Papel: Arte Papel Oaxaca & Kiff Slemmons »

exhibition which is taking place until July 3rd 2010 at the Chicago Cultural Center.

All the pieces are made from artisan paper produced with native plants such as majahua, chichicatzli and pochote, while the dyes come also from natural sources such as indigo (the photos here show the pieces before the dye process). This, of course, makes the pieces biodegradable
