With their achingly intricate paper sculptures of hummingbirds, Game Boys and burgers, French graphic design duo Zim & Zou have been showing the rest of us for a while now what can be done with a stanley knife and a steady hand. Eschewing the computer for quality paper (or in the case of their Hermès’ parrot, leather offcuts from the company’s workshops) they make beautiful objects all deserving of magnified close-ups.
Most recently they’ve channelled Arcimboldo’s crazy food heads and played with the phrase “Tell me what you eat, I’ll tell you who you are," to craft a series of amazing paper masks reflecting different menus from the restaurant Au Bon Gîte. Like some gods from long ago, these lemon-eyed, shrimp-nosed, turnip-haired creatures have a power all of their own.
