A deep love of cinema led Barcelona-born artist Gemma Fenol on a journey to Los Angeles, where she completed a Master’s degree in Set Design. This knowledge has developed into a passion for immersive installations, which allow viewers to “complete” environments by projecting their own experiences and narratives. Paper Sculptures sees the artist combine film and sculpture to play with space. Luminous wooden cutouts are pasted together to create congruent structures, reminiscent of Spanish architect Ricardo Bofill’s pastel apartment blocks and Dutch graphic artist M. C. Escher’s mind boggling prints.
