Papercuts

Since I landed back in London a few weeks ago, I was lucky enough to assist on really exciting new show: The Paper Architect in East London, by the hugely talented and very lovely couple Davy and Kristin McGuire.

This particular work tells a beautiful story of a man in solitude, with an exquisitely intricate ‘set’ of paper and projections. The story makes me think of longing, and of the big crazy dreams of a quiet lonely person. This particular show was in partnership with The Barbican and was quickly sold out- but there is so much more to see of these remarkable artists, if you are like me and and have only just ‘discovered’ them!

I was invited to assist with the hanging by Corinne Hockley of Studio Seven, who creates the most incredibly delicate and strange ‘worlds’, and who was in brought in to take charge of cladding the entire space with cardboard, which made the viewer feel as if you were in a box, with characters and shadows, both big and small.
Even though this show has ended you can still visit the window installation at Leytonstone Library. Also do take a look at their website which features the infamous Icebook work and tour info. I can’t wait to hear what they’ve got coming up next…..
