2017Island Life, Paper City Humber Street Gallery

The invitation was to work with G . F Smith’s Colorplan range of paper to create ‘Paper City’, a series of temporary installations across a range of sites in Hull city centre.

The creatives participating in ‘Paper City’ were Adam Holloway, Max Lamb, Lazerian, Made Thought, Jacqui Poncelet, Joanna Sands, Bethan Laura Wood and Richard Woods, all of whom have been invited to play with the most fundamental creative material – paper.

‘Paper City’ was part of the ‘Look Up’ programme of public artworks being produced throughout the year for Hull UK City of Culture 2017. Made specifically for Hull’s public places and spaces, the aim was to challenge people’s perceptions of Hull and offer different ways to experience the city.

Co-curated by Hazel Colquhoun and Andrew Knight.
