13 ORIGINAL KIRIGAMI WORKS BASED on HAUNTED LOCATIONS FROM FILM AND TV cut from a single sheet of paper
Born from a life long obsession with horror films, Horrorgami was Marc’s first venture into the world of kirigami. Opening at Gallery One-And-A-Half on the 31st Oct 2012 for an initial 2 weeks it ran until January 2013 due to popular demand.
The exhibition attracted attention from respected news, arts & cultural magazines and websites such as the BBC, Wired, and Creative Review. It aptly peaked at No13 on Reddit. By the time the show was open to the public Time Out magazine placed Horrorgami at the top of the ‘Hot List’, naming it the ‘best event to visit in London’ that week.
***GALLERY PRESS RELEASE***
“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.”
