Combat Paper presented by the Ottawa School of Art and Gallery 101

Ottawa School of Art and Gallery 101 present:

COMBAT PAPER COMES TO OTTAWA!!!

Combat Paper

The Ottawa School of Art and Gallery 101 will be hosting a unique art project on November 29 and 30th.

Combat Paper tells the story of the soldier, the Marine – the men and the women – and their journeys within the military service in a time of war. These stories, expressed through performance, poetry and hand-made paper, are the basis for this project. The goal is to utilize art as a means to help veterans reconcile their personal experiences as well as challenge the traditional narrative surrounding service, honour and the military culture. Veterans use their uniforms worn in combat to create cathartic works of art. The uniforms are cut up, beaten into pulp and formed into sheets of paper. Veterans use the transformative process of papermaking to reclaim their uniform as art and begin to embrace their experiences as a soldier in war.

Through ongoing participation in the papermaking process, combat papermakers are attempting to progress from creating works specific to their military experiences to expressing a broader vision on militarism and society. The work reflects both the anger of the past and hope for the future. Through this collaboration between civilians and veterans, a much-needed conversation is generated regarding our responsibilities to the returned veteran and an understanding of the dehumanizing effects of warfare.

Two free Combat Paper events will take place in Ottawa.

During the day on Saturday, November 29 and Sunday, November 30, the Combat Papermaking workshop will take place in the Ottawa School of Art printmaking studio. The workshop is free and is open to all who are interested. Registration is limited to 12 participants. On Saturday evening (November 29), the Combat Paper Readings and Performance will take place at Gallery 101 (301 ½ Bank Street) beginning at 7:00 pm. The Readings and Performance are free of charge and open to the public. There is no registration required for this part of the event.
