Horrorgami

I’m really gutted that I missed this brilliant ‘Horrorgami’ exhibition at Gallery One And A Half on Ardleigh Road.

Born out of an early fascination with horror movies, Marc Hagan-Guirey has recreated some of the horror genre’s most iconic settings in paper. Backlit by a lurid coloured light, the minimalist interpretations are so striking and beautiful. I really wish I could have seen these up close and in real life, with the full effect of the lightbox on the delicate paper cuts and folds.The Bates Residence, from ‘Psycho‘.

112 Ocean Avenue, from ‘The Amityville Horror‘.

1313 Mockingbird Lane, from ‘The Munsters‘.

The MacNeill Residence, from ‘The Exorcist‘.

The Fire Station, from ‘Ghostbusters‘.

The Addams Mansion, from ‘The Addams Family‘.

The Overlook Hotel, from ‘The Shining‘.

The Deetze Residence, from ‘Beetlejuice‘.

I’d love to own one – I think The Addams Family Mansion is probably my favourite. Also, I’m a bit of a pussy and having something in my home that reminded me of ‘The Exorcist’ or ‘The Amityville Horror’ would probably lead to me feeling uneasy about 80% of the time.
