An installation of papercut insects.
Insectorama is a (yet to expand) installation I've made for the exhibition 'Grenzeloos' (Boundless) in the Stedelijk Museum of Kampen, the Netherlands. The insects are all hand cut from paper.

In a review about Insectorama:
Sigrid Spier makes works of paper between flat and 3D. Her insects are pinned to the wall, but in an attempt to liberate themselves they extend their wings into the museum hall. Give us space!
