This summer the Holland Paper Biennial will be held in Museum Rijswijk for the third time. For this
particular biennial the work of 24 paper artists has been selected, eight of whom specialize in making
jewellery. All the artists use paper as the basis for their work which is both two-dimensional and
three-dimensional. They manipulate it in all sorts of different ways and either make the paper themselves
from plant fibres, or use machine-made papers.
