SCENES INSPIRED BY STAR WARS CUT FROM A SINGLE SHEET OF PAPER
– AS SEEN ON –
2015 saw Marc return with his second solo exhibition – Cut Scene. During the 3 years since Horrorgami Marc learned to engineer a single sheet of paper into even more complex designs than previously and as a life long fan of Star Wars had no doubts about the subject for his next collection.
Cut Scene was funded via a successful Kickstarter campaign. The Cut Scene campaign launched on May 4th 2015 with the exclusive ran by the BFI. Within a few days news soon spread virally being published on a host of respected news, arts and cultural sites such as WIRED, CNN, Shortlist.com, CreativeBloQ, LaughingSquid, MSN and a whole host of others. Within 16 days the project was 100% backed. A second wave of press emerged in the week leading up to the opening with TV coverage on BBC World News and London Live, and reviews in ShortList Magazine, GQ, Londonist, The Mirror and Mashable.
Cut Scene was exhibited at 5th Base Gallery, London from Saturday 8th – Sunday 16th August 2015.
INTERVIEW ON BBC WORLD NEWS
THE ORIGINAL KICKSTARTER PITCH
Is this an official Star Wars Exhibition?
Nope. Currently I’m not affiliated with either Lucasfilm or Disney but who know’s what will happen in the future.
Are you selling editions of the work?
Again no. I don’t have a license to sell official Star Wars merchanise. I’m a massive fan and hugely respect the brand which is why I’m essentially asking fans to make the exhibition a reality without me doing anything illegal.
What’s your favourite piece?
It changes all the time but I’m very proud of Jabba’s barge.
Is it really just 1 piece of paper?
Yes. I start with a piece of A4 210mg stock.
Do you ever make mistakes?
Does a Dark Lord Sith in the woods?
