Annalise Rees: Cardboard Cities

Australian artist, Annalise Rees, plays with space and drawing in her two and three dimensional ‘drawn’ house-scapes. Her work is sculptural and installation based, and she uses iconic everyday motifs such as the house and everyday materials such as street directories and dressmaking patterns as a way of connecting and investigating social and cultural attitudes towards
the familiar.

This is one of her cardboard cities, made from cardboard and glue – she runs public demonstrations on making these occasionally (see artroom5 for more info on this show last year).

And this drawing installation is from Daikanyama Installation 2007 an annual art competition, in Tokyo, open to anyone interested in research on the relationship between contemporary art and public space and in creating art forms in the context of urban architecture.
