The project 5+5 contemporary works on paper with five painters from China and five from Barcelona will be exhibited on 2013. The 5+5 stone lithography case contains ten lithographies, one of each artist, printed at Taller Esquina.

The making of the 5+5 stone lithography case involves a great amount of hours, with the preparation of the stones at the beginning, the drawings, the artist proofs on different papers and follows with the final edition of 30 copies, and the hand made case.

During the months that are needed for the editions, the artists have a closely participation, with the opportunity of exchange opinions, experiment with new techniques and collaborate with each others works.
This process can be seen on this video

The editions are being prepared at Taller Esquina in Barcelona by Maribel Mas, in a french style stone press, using Graphic Chemical and Charbonnel inks to ensure the best quality and endurance of the colors.

The lithographies 5+5 are being printed on 32 x 32 cm papers of different fibers, like cotton-abaca from Molì Paperer de Capellades, cotton Arches Velin or japanese Inshu-washi ganpi, depending on the necessities of each artist to develop her work.

The cases are being elaborated by Àngels Arroyo in her atelier using italian Guarro cotton textile of black and white thread, according to the square format used in the works for the exhibition, with the 5+5 logo on the cover.

The lithographies are being printed between october and december 2012, and will be shown in march 2013 in Fundación Setba and Ars Libris art book fair in Barcelona.

In september 2013 could be seen also on Molì Paperer de Capellades.

#02 / 5+5 La fuerza de la fragilidad

Prólogo de Alex Mitrani

Hay encuentros que son tan felices, tan acertados y fértiles, que nos hacen olvidar su origen azaroso. Esta reunión de artistas se ha producido gracias a los contactos y a las afinidades personales en los cuales es tan importante el reconocimiento de la sensibilidad gemela como la casualidad. De este modo, la vocación y la pasión artística generan aproximaciones sorprendentes como las de estas cinco artistas afincadas en Barcelona y estas cinco artistas chinas. Hay entre ellas una gran distancia geográfica y cultural, pero en nuestra civilización actual de internet estas distancias ya no tienen sentido o tiene un sentido diferente. Una chispa de interés, la constatación de una afinidad sutil, una necesidad de diálogo e intercambio, la curiosidad y la generosidad, han sido los alicientes suficientes para iniciar un trabajo colectivo.

#01 / My Fire Enwrapped within my paper

A foreword for 5+5 contemporay works on paper by Pao Pao, 泡泡

If possible, I would like to continue writing line after line until I fill this entire sheet of paper, then onto the next one… in that case, I would attain a projected rhythm and disposition in order to “complete towards a poem”. Rather than writing a foreword or commentary, this is an attempt to approach or capture the aura and spirit of these works on paper, along with these ten artists to stand on paper and sit around in a circle to dream.

Yes, paper is differentiated by raw or aged, characterized differently. Our shared feminine sensibility allow us to meet in the dream of dreams in the myriads of this world, needless to translate, or even speak, we would be able to share these vivid and rare outcomes, sweetness within bitterness, happiness within sorrow.
Whether paper is the medium, or a friend, or the enemy, it allows art to discover the physical existence of desire, arrival and emergence.
