UK artist Marc Hagan-Guirey creates origami paper crafts of famous houses from horror movies. Shown above and below: The Overlook Hotel from Stanley Kubrick’s classic, The Shining.
“Theatrical silhouettes bring the kirigami to life and the imagination takes over, filling in the blanks and embellishing the model with details remembered from the film. I liken this to the effect of watching a horror movie during the day as opposed the much more fearful experience of watching it a night. Horror films of the ‘70s and ‘80s are in a completely different class to those of today. At the mere mention of films such as The Shining and The Exorcist I’m always blown away by the reaction I get from people and their personal experiences of watching them. They almost have a “Where were you when” feel to them. This is why I think people have such strong reactions to Horrorgami and for me why they’re such a joy to make.”
Marc has a solo show opening in London on November 1st - INFO HERE.
