Artist Mia Pearlman performs Site Specific Installations using cut paper as the sole material.
During his residency at Proyecto´ace Pearlman developed for the first time -with the help of Argentine industrial designers and the´ace team- a digital prototype for laser cutting with which he subsequently made an edition of medium-sized sculptures.
She also worked in the workshop of ´ace in a series of impressions using the monotype technique which he later continued to work making by hand for the construction of his scrolls.
At the end of his residency, the digital prototype was brought to the United States, where he made an edition of the multiple of 200 copies which were sold at the Museum of Art & Design in New York, together with the exhibition Slash: Paper under the Knife, in which Mia was one of the invited artists.
The exhibition was curated by David Revere McFadden and was open from October 7, 2009 to April 4, 2010.
” I make site-specific cut paper installations, ephemeral drawings that inhabit space in both two and three dimensions. I first make complex line drawings on large rolls of paper in India ink. Then I cut out selected areas to create a new drawing, made of positive and negative space, on the reverse. Pinned into a sculptural form, these forms create a drawing in space. And finally, their shadows produce a wholly new drawing on and around the three dimensional drawing”.
