The only Museum for Paper Art in the north opens in Blokhus Friday the 23th of March. Free entrance from 13 to 17.
The world of paper
You may think you know paper. The thin sheets or fibres that constitute a natural part of our everyday lives: Writing paper. Baking paper. Wrapping paper. Copy paper. But paper is so much more. The diverse material holds a vast potential that goes way beyond its traditional use. Paper also makes for great art – psaligraphy, origami, decoupage, sculpture, and other impressive forms of expression.
A new kind of heartbeat
Stepping into our exhibitions, you will feel time moving a little bit slower. Paper art is the epitome of slow art – for the artist as well as the spectator. So leave time behind for a moment and get lost in captivating works that will make you stop and wonder – a much-welcomed break from a restless, fast-moving, and demanding world. Museum for Paper Art is a haven and a place for peace and reflection. A place where you can enjoy the here and now and just let yourself get carried away.
Museum for Paper Art is the only art centre in Scandinavia that focuses solely on paper: cut, folded, shaped, ripped, or carved. We invite you to experience impressive and fascinating contemporary paper art, crafts, and design by national and international artists.

Bit Vejle is a psaligrapher. She has after years of exhibitions in Scandinavia, UK,US and China and collaborations with exclusive brands as Hermés and Georg Jensen established Museum for Paper Art in Blokhus, North Jutland, Denmark. Bit Vejle creates slow art and tells stories: each work of art narrates with air, paper and shadows. Some confront deep seriousness, while others simply celebrate the joy in the small things.
