About the Paper Dialogues exhibition

With the support of the Norwegian government, Danish papercutting artist Bit Vejle traveled to China in 2013 to exhibit her work. As an artist, Vejle draws inspiration from Norway’s medieval wood carvings and the nineteenth century papercuts of Danish Golden Age author Hans Christian Andersen. While in China, the cradle of papercutting art, she met Professor Xiaoguang Qiao at Beijing’s Central Academy of Fine Arts. Together they selected a common motif in Nordic and Chinese art—the dragon—and each created their own papercut interpretation of the mythic beast.
