Paper Sculpture of Children Happily Dancing

Paper Sculpture of Children Happily Dancing

With the use of several layers of black paper, black foam core and hardware, Canadian artist Kristi Malakoff has recreated this life-sized installation, entitled Maibaum, showcasing a lifelike scene where joyous children are partaking in an old European folk tradition of the Maypole dance. This moment, is as if frozen in time, harnesses the energy that was captured and makes those who enter feel that they were a part of it.

“By presenting these ubiquitous objects in a new way, I hope to both challenge their entrenched symbolism as well as to bring humanism and the element of the handmade back into these highly manufactured products.” – Kristi Malakoff
