Károly Keserü, Papertiger, Patrick Heide Contemporary Art

Papertiger was the first solo show of Károly Keserü solely dedicated to works on paper. Apart from his trademark graphite and ink drawings there was also a selection of works that did not involve any other medium than the paper itself: the folded, crumpled, embossed, punched and punctured pieces show a playful side of this Hungarian artist.

With processes that are stock of the trade for any book designer taking centre stage in the artworks, the catalogue is an exercise in designer's restraint. Much like a Gentleman's clothes should never be a talking point, the grey cloth cover provides the perfect entree into a world where the medium becomes the message.
