Origami tutus and ballet in public spaces by montreal artists

The PLI.Ē Project fuses the delicate balancing act of ballet, and the intricate, yet subtle touch of paper folding into a colorful display of movements. The project was created by two Montreal based artists, who were seeking for ways to bring their different field into one working performance. Featuring dancers in human size, paper apparels, the PLI.E project sorts to showcase dance and paper crafts.

Creators Melika Dez ( who manged the photography and models) and Pauline Loctin ( who created the costumes ) came together in 2018 for the first part of the project. Each focusing on their area of prominence and diving location and placement of dancers between themselves.

“Paper can be a fragile material to work with and that is exactly why we decided to make the impossible, possible. No matter which element we would be confronted to, water (rain), wind, we wanted to show that we are limitless.” Pauline Loctin


origami enthusiast craft intricately detailed, aesthetically satisfying cranes

Featuring over a 1000 different Japanese cranes in exquisite colours, shapes and intricate designs, this paper enthusiast injects modern flair into an otherwise traditional art form of paper folding.

In a break from convention, he mixes cuts and folds ( origami and Kirigami ) in several delightful avian paper-arts forms; an amazing list featuring several feathery cranes,  with more details and empathize on the wings.

Paper creative Cristian Marianciuc once set himself an ambitious of a  1,000 origami cranes in 1,000 days — which is a form of prayer for goodwill in Japanese culture —  which he as long achieved yet still persist with his crafts and has grown his gallery over his pre-set goals, and with unique elaborate wing designs.

“I never stopped folding and decorating new ones. It just wasn’t on a daily basis anymore,”

he says .

He is focused more on exploring themes as techniques and trying out new creative mixes.

Paper folding is a traditional act from Japan which allow a single sheet of paper become any incredible peice of art, the crafter so chooses but It focuses on folds, and cuts without a single glue to the paper frame which is traditional “Kirigami” in Japanese.
