the papermaker.

Standard

i have always had a great love of paper

especially handmade

each piece unique

the feel, the smell, the beauty,

 the unlimited opportunities

to decorate it, to write and draw and paint upon it,

to fold it, to cut it, to wrap with it, to read from it, to create with it.

the short film below is a glimpse into the life of an artisan

who is also passionate about paper.

“The Papermaker“ is a short documentary about one of the last handcrafting papermakers in Europe and his great love for paper. Gangolf Ulbricht makes unique tree- free papers by hand. For international artists, conservators, photographers, printers and many more. He learned his uniqe craft in Germany, Japan, France and England. In this short film we see him producing his fine paper in his basement studio in the Arthouse Bethanien in Berlin-Kreuzberg. He talks about his love and dedication for this craft – and it ́s future. Gangolf has worked for a number of known artists like: Jenny Holzer, Louise Bourgeois, Guenther Uecker, Jonathan Meese, Damien Hirst, Christiane Baumgartner, Matthias Weischer and many more.

kinders find tiny ants, roly-poly’s, and baby spiders

when playing on the sidewalk

and decide to create a playground for them

using all of their pretty chalks.

about art having no boundaries

 how things can look and sound and feel

art can be found in all kinds of places

and

most of all

that each of them are artists in their own right.
