“Every morning, on my way to work, I greeted a chubby lady who watched me from a house corner. Eventually I went closer, only to discover that this life size woman was hand-cut from a large or maybe many sheets of paper – no lines of a drawing remained. Two years on, a bit washed out, the lady is still there and it still puzzles me how many hours the maker had spent on creating her, to then surrender the paper woman to the circumstances of the street.”
SWOON’s work attracts attention for the delicacy and uniqueness with which her pieces are made. Her cutouts can be found in the streets of New York, Berlin and many other cities. SWOON spoke about the development of her work.
