German artist Angela Glajcar creates seemingly massive otherworldly environments in My Silence Is My Self Defense using just hand-torn paper, light, and space. It’s a technique Glajcar calls “terforation,” a portmanteau of “terra” (earth) and “perforation” (hole). The resulting work feels akin to peering deep into the depths of a cave.

See website for schedule; K.OSS Contemporary Art, 1410 Gratiot Ave., Detroit; 248-599-2232; kossgallery.com. Through March 28.
