uruguayan artist showing in seattle

"Born in Uruguay and living in New York, Marco Maggi is known for ambitious installations made from thousands of reams of paper, stacked, scattered, and slumped about the gallery. The reams have minute incisions on their surfaces and the flaps of paper are bent into delicate arches and some bewilderingly complex architectural forms. The overall effect is of a cross between the ancient ruins of pre-Columbian civilizations and computer circuitry, suggesting the growing obsolescence of paper in communication. The scores of blank pages alternately serve as reminders of potential expression. Maggi has exhibited nationally and internationally, including biennials in Korea, Havana, Sao Paulo, and is in the collections of the Museum of Modern Art in New York, Museum of Fine Arts in Boston, The Kemper Museum of Contemporary Art in Kansas City, and many noted private collections."
