Time Out


Time Out says

A love of horror films and the macabre is the inspiration behind these 'Horrorgami' works by Marc Hagan-Guirey, aka Paper Dandy, a 'paper architect', who employs the ancient and fiddly Japanese art of kirigami. Perfect for Halloween gallery-goers, each construction depicts an iconic location from a cult horror movie -including The Overlook Hotel from 'The Shining' and 112 Ocean Avenue from the 'Amityville' films. Hagan-Guirey further ramps up the atmosphere by presenting the works in lightboxes so that, after dark, their silhouetted forms appear as spectral and ethereal. He wants us to think about the artifice of fear and horror as a psychological construct. And, yes, cut from a single sheet of paper, each piece was probably a nightmare to make.
