paper artist of the week: maria ikonomopoulou



you and me by maria ikonomopoulou.
maria typically works with altered photographs, embroidering and cutting them to reshape storylines. about this project: during commissions ikonomopoulou has been doing in public spaces for several years, she kept record of all the names of people that have participated in her projects. these names reappear in her new works, installations and photoworks, as paper cut outs and hanwritten texts that become texture in a special way. you and me is a series of photographs of these names, cut of paper, and worn by a subject. lovely.
