Paper Trails features new work by Victoria Reichelt and Carly Fischer. Developed as separate works, Reichelt’s paintings and Fischer’s sculptures explore a common vocabulary, which starts with an interest in the peripheries, the discarded objects that accumulate in forgotten places, gathering dust. In Reichelt’s paintings, paper archives grow old and go unloved in storerooms, while Fischer’s sculptures model every- day detritus.
Reichelt and Fischer reflect on the precarious medium of paper in meticulously made works that serve as monuments to the form. Reichelt renders paper archives in paint, whereas Fischer fabricates rubbish in to-scale paper models. Their precision creates artefacts of the objects, suited to museum viewing, moving them from margin to centre stage.
