See Your Favorite Haunted Houses in Horrorgami FormNever mind paper folding a tiny boat or a Pterodactyl – that’s just child’s play (although we do admit that anything featuring a Pterodactyl is pretty damned cool). Now this? This is what we’re talking about! Your favorite haunted houses in paper form!

Below you’ll find some amazing works of Kirigami from artist Marc Hagan-Guirey, whose lifelong obsession with horror movies has been put to good use!

According to Paper Dandy, Horrorgami was Marc’s first venture into the world of kirigami. Opening at Gallery One-And-A-Half on the 31st of October, 2012, for an initial two weeks, it ran until January 2013 due to popular demand. The exhibition attracted attention from respected news, arts and cultural magazines, and websites such as the BBC, Wired, and Creative Review. It aptly peaked at No. 13 on Reddit. By the time the show was open to the public, Time Out magazine placed Horrorgami at the top of the ‘Hot List’, naming it the ‘best event to visit in London’ that week.

“Presented within light boxes, by night the silhouetted paper sculptures appear as spectral and ethereal as the buildings on screen,” says Catherine Collins, owner of Gallery One-And-A-Half. “By day, the works exist in their pure white and tangible form – displaying an innocent and simple beauty and showing their physical construction. Through this duplicitous presentation, Hagan-Guirey juxtaposes the experience of viewing the work with the experience of watching the horror films he loves. Under the cloak of darkness, a horror film is at its most effective and potent, but this power dissipates when viewed in the safety and familiarity of daylight.”
