3,300 Folded Pieces of Paper

Believe it or not, this stunning room screen is made of 3,300 1.5-inch-wide, 40-inch-long pieces of archival, acid-free folded paper. Artist Fred Annes folded and unfolded and squished each one and then sandwiched each strand between big panes of glass. Yes, you heard right: 3,300 pieces of paper, all folded by hand. “I watch a lot of Netflix movies,” says the Minneapolis painter and sculptor. This June, the screen is going to represent Annes at the Function + Art Gallery in Chicago, so if you have $14,000 to spare for local art, be sure to make an appointment to see this remarkable piece before then.
