As a part of the 2013 Artaq Festival, french street artist Mademoiselle Maurice presented three new pieces of paper art in the city of Angiers, France.
The colorful wall murals were made of 30,000 pieces of origami with the help of local school kids, adults, or “leisure center” residents. All the folded origami artworks were prepared a couple of months before the festival during the weekly paper folding workshops organized by Mademoiselle Maurice seeking to “deepen the link between individuals who form that human network [to] which we belong and [that] we frequent every day.”
The Saint-Maurice cathedral was adorned with two colored paper installations—a geometric pattern on the front gate and a rainbow of origami on the front steps. The third unique artwork, a massive origami mural, was placed on the banks of the Maine river.
