Artist's Description

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.
These collages 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.
I combine these collages with my own cultural sense of identity in overlays of ‘folding’ from which the Japanese tradition of origami originates. Some of the images are folded and distorted to the point of caricature and are playfully appropriated to create collages which are sometimes 3D, and yet ‘flat and textured’ dioramas of the imagery. One aspect of the work is the use of box frames to ‘house’ the collages, reminiscent in their installation of ‘dolls’ houses’ or ‘multi-theatres’.

*I used both square box frames and shadow boxes (h & w 29 cm x d 12 cm), which echoes the squares of origami paper.
