An exhibition of paper costumes, objects, collage and photography connecting to the Kings Cross area for the Kings Cross Reveal Festival. The exhibition was staged within Minnie Weisz Studio at St Pancras Arches and involved collaboration with photographer Minnie Weisz as well as a one-off live poetry reading of  Vale Royal by poet Aidan Andrew Dun.


Throughout the works on display there are continuous references to bones and teeth, with skeleton-like structures reflecting the carcass of Victorian Kings Cross and the memories within. Collinge explores a range of materials, including paper folding using old maps and pages from books, shaping them into costume, forms and structures using origami techniques as well as a large-scale crinoline bone. Both artists describe their collaboration as a natural meeting of vision and understanding. The derelict areas they explored could have seemed unwelcoming, but the two artists developed and produced a fantasy impression of what might have otherwise become an impersonal tour of abandoned spaces.
