This image is from my ‘online’ exhibition which I entitled ‘美:BI:BEAUTY’. This exhibition has three aspects – this image is from one aspect which is an installation which I created from the box framed collages and Kanji cut-outs.
This collage has been created by assembling images and cut-outs from short-lived ‘gossip’ magazines and other such ‘mass media’ publications, which is the material I use and recycle as the major material component of this project.
Most of the cut-outs are folded and distorted to the point of caricature and are playfully appropriated to create this collage which is 3D, and yet ‘flat and textured’ diorama of the imagery.
I used a square box frame (h & w 29 cm x d 12 cm), which echoes the squares of origami paper, to ‘house’ this collage as a ‘dolls’ house’ or ‘theatre’.
