|David Mitchell's Origami Heaven - Exhibitions and Partnership Art|
designed, folded and assembled by David Mitchell are
available for loan for temporary exhibition at suitable
locations within the United Kingdom. They are not
normally available for permanent exhibition or sale.
Sculptures can also be licensed for exhibition as partnership art.
art is a concept that expresses the partnership that
exists in craft origami, and can exist in origami as art,
between the designer, who first conceptualises and
defines the design, and the folder who realises one
particular expression of it at one particular point in
time. Both contribute in partnership to the finished
paperfold or artwork.
This separation of design and realisation allows a delicate artwork to be created in situ and so avoids the risk of damage in transit. Furthermore it means that each realisation will not only be remote in space and time but also unique to the context in which it is to be created and displayed.
In addition the concept of partnership art harmonises well with the idea of origami as a transitory artform, one that is not intended to last in any particular realisation but that can, and should, be realised over and over again in many different contexts.
