Marc Fichou: Origami and Paper


“As in my previous self-referential works, my intention here is to create a piece where the image cannot be separated from its referent, thus creating a visual link between past and present. This concept naturally led me towards origami because of the reversible character of its folding process: each can be unfolded back to its initial two-dimensional square, and in so doing retain the physical marks of its creases.” — Marc Fichou

Marc Fichou shows each sheet of paper containing both the photographic and the material memories of its past origami form. Origami and paper are one and the same thing at two different times, in two different spaces and in two different shapes. The final piece becomes both a photograph and a sculptural object, thus blurring the line between image and matter.
