Black & White Papercut
46cm x 56cm
Sophie Herxheimer will be showcasing a series of black and white paper cuts she made to accompany her poems.
“They’re black and white paper cuts of all sorts of objects: armchairs,
lampshades, brandy glasses. I still live with some of my granny’s furniture.”
This lumbering legacy of material objects is nothing but a symbol of how much people could learn from their past, both as individuals and as member of a society
“What is important about the past is only how it reflects on the present,” Herxheimer says.
“It’s much more important in the way we look at it now as people who have a changing relationship with Europe because of Brexit, and an ongoing crisis with refugees and immigration.”
