Andrea Dezsö’s Tunnel Books: Interior Worlds


I remember seeing a model of a stage set as a child, and being fascinated with the elaborate world created when elaborately painted scenes were dropped in at the top, and peering in through the front of the box a fantastical miniature world was created backdrop by backdrop. Andrea Dezsö‘s surrealist cut-paper tunnel books reminded me of it, except her work speaks to a decidedly wilder and darker place, a garden run riot after the fall of man. This work was up at the Nancy Margolis gallery in Chelsea earlier this year (better late than never has become my grad school motto).
