Mizuma Gallery is pleased to announce Carte Blanche: Anxiety, a group exhibition of works on paper by Indonesian artists.

When someone says, “I have it on paper”, it usually refers to something that binds two or more parties in a legal sense. It is an official promise that something must be done, more likely within a certain time frame. This marks the end of a negotiation. In the arts, however, it is almost the complete opposite. Paper is treated as a start, as a beginning. It is used for sketching, it is used before things become paintings, sculptures, installations, or whatever. It is okay to be wrong on paper. Paper represents ideas, thoughts, and try-outs. There is no certain time frame for things on paper to be executed. This exhibition begins with questioning the idea of paper as a representative of ideas. What power does paper have? What power does it render?

Curated by Grace Samboh, this exhibition showcases works by Anang Saptoto, Bambang “Toko” Witjaksono, Cinanti Astria Johansjah, Cut and Rescue, Handiwirman Saputra, Iwan Effendi, Julia Sarisetiati, Kokok P. Sancoko, Krack, Priyanto Sunarto, and R.E. Hartanto.
