English: When James was 17, he lost his leg due to bone cancer. Closed in his bedroom, unable to move, he found in cardboard the ideal material to express his everyday life and pain. Cheap, light and easy to obtain, cardboard was for James the only material he decided to work with since then. Today James is 44, his cardboard sculptures continue to talk about human fragility and pain, but something has interrupted his routine: James has been invited to The International Biennial of paper art in Lucca, Italy, and he will travel abroad for the first time. “Paperman” is a story of redemption, the life of an artist, an extraordinary man who faces a challenge that could change his life. For the first time James will deal with a monumental cardboard sculpture, the artist will have to confront new experiences, discovering paper artists, traditions, innovation and sustainability, making art a bridge between cultures.

Italian: A 17 anni a James Lake viene amputata la gamba destra a causa di un tumore osseo. Chiuso nella sua camera da letto, incapace di muoversi, scopre nel cartone il mezzo ideale (economico, leggero, accessibile) per raccontare il suo mondo. Oggi James ha 44 anni, le sue sculture di cartone continuano a parlare di fragilità umana, e per la prima volta dovrà viaggiare all’estero, in Italia: la Biennale internazionale sulla carta lo ha invitato.
Paperman è una storia di redenzione, la vita di un artista e di un uomo straordinario che ha lottato per la sua rinascita. Per la prima volta, James dovrà confrontarsi con la difficoltà nel costruire un’opera monumentale in cartone, confrontandosi con se stesso e con nuove esperienze, artisti e tradizione della carta in cui la carta è un punto di congiunzione tra culture
