Craft Victoria and Kathleen Syme Library and Community Centre are pleased to present Sai-Wai Foo.

Kathleen Syme Library and Community Centre is playing host to a series of paper sculptures by Melbourne visual artist Sai-Wai Foo through the month of August; as part of Craft’s Craft Cubed Festival, Window Walk

Viewers will be transported into an imagined world via these paper sculptures that are suspended in Vitrines in the public spaces of the Library. 

Assembled using preloved copies manuscripts that have been gleaned from op-shops and flea markets. These tomes have transformed through cutting, pleating, gluing, sewing and manipulation of paper, combined with the addition of the artisanal to create magical realms that capture many worlds that can be explored in the volumes that surround them.
