Literature Paper Forms

Zim & Zou bring nobel prize winning literature to life in colourful paper forms.

Experience prose in physical forms at ‘sharing worlds — the nobel prize in literature’ exhibition in La Mer, Dubai. Amid the other artists featured at the exhibit, two stories in particular stand out. French artists Zim & Zou brought ‘one hundred years of solitude’ and ‘ristin lavransdatter’ to life, erecting tall mountains, colombian plants, and countless other details from coloured paper.


Zim & Zou is comprised of Lucie Thomas and Thibault Zimmermann. While their portfolio is diverse in colours, styles and subject matter, their medium (paper art) connects all of their work together. Here, they’ve tasked themselves with honoring two great nobel prize-winning authors and their magnum opuses.

The first story in red, many will recognise, as fourteenth century Norway, richly depicted by Sigrid Undset’s protagonist in her historical fiction epic, ‘Kristin Lavransdatter.’


The second paper story came from Zim & Zou’s nobel muse, Gabriel García Márquez and his magical realism story, ‘One Hundred Years of Solitude.’
