When it comes to artistic mediums, many people may view paper merely as a blank canvas for drawings and sketches. However, as evident in this collection of incredible installations, paper’s role in the realm of art is massive—literally!

Exhibiting a range of aesthetic styles, artistic techniques, and original concepts, this selection of large-scale paper installations showcases each artist’s unique approach to the craft. Some, like Emmanuelle Moureaux, Annie Vought, and Yuko Takada Keller, meticulously cut sheets of paper into dainty and delicate floor-to-ceiling works of art. Others, like Gabby O’Connor, Orproject, and collaborative duo Wade Kavanaugh and Stephen B. Nguyen, make monumental pieces that are more sculptural in nature. Whether airy and fragile or structurally solid, each large-scale installation proves that paper is so much more than a monotonous means to an artistic end!
