Installation, I’ll Give You a Papercut 


Wycinanki, is a Polish folk art tradition of hand cut paper with decorative scenes and patterns – flowers, birds, patterns or people in rural scenes. Traditionally cut in a circular form, averaging around 30cm in diameter, they were used to decorate homes.

I’ll Give You A Paper Cut subverts those traditional forms, replacing what would have been a sweet rural scene, with the femme fatale in an interior space.
