About CECILIA LEVY

Art objects made of paper, preferably from old books from the last century.

Small pieces of paper are pasted together, one by one. The pages are slowly reassembled into new objects.
Eggshell thin, yet remarkably steady. The story lives on, but in a different shape.

My name is Cecilia Levy, I live and work in Sigtuna, Sweden. Formerly a graphic designer and bookbinder, I now work as an independent artist. I participate in solo and group exhibitions in Sweden and abroad, work with public art commissions and hold an occasional workshop in bookbinding. If you happen to be in Stockholm, don't miss a visit to the shop & gallery Konsthantverkarna where some of my work is sold. This is also where the finest selection of Swedish arts and crafts can be found.

For questions or inquiries please feel free to contact me!

The Museum of Medical History in Uppsala is the setting for an art project, Stoff, that I'm part of. Art objects are placed among the historical medical instruments. Read more here http://www.medicinhistoriskamuseet.uu.se/om/utstallningar/
Visit to the Museum of Medical History in Uppsala last week. Fascinating and disturbing at the same time. Old medical tools and instruments where so detailed and beautiful. My daughter Rosa was not at all thrilled, the place creeped her out. She felt nauseous and waited outside.
I had one of the best days ever yesterday! #birthday

I really don't have time to make any cups right now due to a public commission I'm currently working on. But I made an exception, this is The Letter, off to a silent auction in the US. Hopefully it will help raise some money for people going through rough times #cupandsaucer #bookpaperandglue #paperart #konsthantverkarna #cecilialevy
Yes! Instead of throwing away perfectly good things, leave them in this container for someone else to find use for 🌟  #recycle #dontwaste #shareandcare #sigtuna #sigtunakommun #återvinningsstation
