Paper Gymnasiums of the Mind
featuring new work by Artists and Fabulists
ELIZABETH PORTER + ALEX STEWART
As children the toys we loved most were the ones with which we could make our own worlds. Using lead soldiers, puppets and stuffed toys, trains and cars strewn across a landscape of cushion and carpet. We would escape from the real world and let our imaginations carry us into those diminutive realms. We’d both had Pollock’s theatres: the little paper theatres that were one of the most popular forms of entertainment in the late 19th century. We wondered if we could make our own. So here they are, the theatre’s we have made with their scenes and characters, waiting for you to bring your own imagination to play and tell tales of your own.
