Hanji Unfurled: One Journey into Korean Papermaking


Aimee Lee researched Korean paper arts as a Fulbright fellow and built the first Korean papermaking studio in North America

 
DateFriday, November 29, 2013

Location

Central Hall, Room 230 100 McCaul St. Toronto, Ontario

With visiting artist Aimee Lee

Korean papermaking has a history almost as long as papermaking itself. Korean paper, known as hanji, is made from the inner bark of the mulberry tree, renowned for its long and strong fibers. This makes hanji ideal for an array of applications, from uses in the home and studio to experiments in robotics, cuisine, and audio technology. Aimee Lee, the leading American scholar on Korean papermaking and author of award-winning Hanji Unfurled, will share her journey through the history, practice, and use of hanji. These stories will be accompanied by images and videos of her research that depict the current state of Korean papermaking and related arts, further illuminated by samples of hanji and artwork made of this lustrous and durable paper.

Aimee Lee is an artist who works in paper, book, and installation arts. She holds a BA in Visual Arts from Oberlin College and an MFA in Interdisciplinary Book and Paper Arts from Columbia College Chicago. She researched Korean paper arts as a Fulbright fellow and built the first Korean papermaking studio in North America in 2010 at the Morgan Conservatory in Cleveland. In 2012, The Legacy Press published her book, Hanji Unfurled: One Journey into Korean Papermaking, honored by the Eric Hoffer Book Award in 2013. She travels widely to lecture, teach, exhibit, and serve as a resident artist. Visit aimeelee.net for more information.
