Shadow works > Mayflies and Stars

Mayflies and Stars was an exhibition in 2021 at ArtSpace Realm in City of Maroondah in Melbourne. It offered the untold stories of the tiny creatures like insects, weeds and leaves that fill our everyday lives, with an enigmatic world of moving shadows and shifting forms. The intricate papercuts and shadow puppetry in the exhibition brought to life memories and personal recollections of Japanese folklore and evoked the ephemeral, fleeting beauty of the world these tiny creatures inhabit. Drawing on real and imagined beings, Mayflies and Stars invites audiences to take part in her whimsical stories of exploration and adventure.
