A womb-like world of paper at art center

"Within and Out," an installation by Jocelyn Chateauvert, takes its inspiration from the sculpture of Richard Serra. Her paper pieces could not be further from the incredible, but oppressive rusty steel slabs by Serra, but one can see the connections down to some of the colors.
The Charleston artists has turned one of the studio apartments at the 701 Center for Contemporary Art into a magical room of brown and blue and gray screens of rough-textured handmade paper.
Each portion was created piecing sheets together on a sewing machine. The walls reach toward the ceiling of the room and create room within their crinkly walls.

A sneak preview of the show took place Sunday, but today it opens for regular center hours Wednesday through Sundays. Call (803) 779-4571.
