Made from a single sheet of A4 paper, the above, impressively detailed paper model of Overlook Hotel from The Shining is one of 13 kirigami works by Marc Hagan-Guirey, aka Paper Dandy, that form his debut exhibition, Horrorgami…

Perfectly timed to coincide with Halloween (the private view is tomorrow evening on October 31) Horrorgami celebrates 13 famous horror movies houses (the house from The Amityville Horror, shown above), with each model made from a single sheet of A4 and displayed in a specially constructed display case, back lit by a lightbox:

“Quite early on I knew the best way to display the buildings was to use lightboxes,” says Hagan-Guirey of the artworks. “The models have a dual personality,” he continues, “in day light you can see exactly how the piece has been engineered and crafted, but at night, when backlit, the model turns into a different creature.”

Each of the miniature models, complete with backlit display case, is available in an edition limited to a spooky 13.

Horrorgami by Paper Dandy runs from November 1 to 14 at Gallery One And A Half at 1½ Ardleigh Road, London, N1 4HS.
