Horrorgami by Marc Hagan-Guirey

Original kirigami works based on infamous haunted locations from film and tv. Haunted houses cut from a single sheet of paper.

“Presented within light boxes, by night the silhouetted paper sculptures appear as spectral and ethereal as the buildings on screen. By day, the works exist in their pure white and tangible form – displaying an innocent and simple beauty and showing their physical construction. Through this duplicitous presentation, Hagan-Guirey juxtaposes the experience of viewing the work with the experience of watching the horror films he loves. Under the cloak of darkness, a horror film is at its most effective and potent but this power dissipates when viewed in the safety and familiarity of daylight.”
