Nendo's Un-Printed Material Exhibition Pays Tribute to Paper Without Using It

For Creation Gallery G8 — a gallery dedicated mostly to graphic design — Japanese design Studio Nendo is exhibiting ‘Un-Printed Material’, a show paying tribute to paper without using it. For a space that exhibits the work of people who use paper as a medium, this proposal follows Oki Sato’s idea of having a ‘poster exhibition without posters’. These abstract versions of paper reduce it to the minimal form of only an outline. What’s unique about these pieces, is that they have been both 3D-printed and molded by hand to better achieve the life-like quality of paper itself.

Located in Ginza,tokyo, Creation Gallery G8 has dedicated three rooms to Nendo’s exhibition; the first one contains 30 sheets of A1-sized hanged poster that showcase time and use on paper. The outlines of some of these posters look wrinkled, torn, or even sometimes falling. The second room shows a number of postcards that have been manipulated by hands — ripping and folding them. The last room exhibits another abstraction of paper-made objects including paper bags, milk cartons, and origami.
