Mademoiselle Maurice is a Paris-based artist who grew up in France. This summer French paper artist took her unique style of urban origami installation to the streets of Hong Kong, Vietnam and Paris. These stars are created from hundreds of folded origami papercrafts. These geometric papercrafts symbolize ideas of harmony, spirituality and peace.
The Vietnam and Hong-Kong installations feature a rainbow colored star that represents independence in either nation, reflecting their national flags. In France, Mademoiselle Maurice installed a colorful hexagon that represents bees and the threat that humanity has on their existence.
The artist’s latest public installations bring us more of her wide spectrum of colors in more geometric configurations. She admits her installations are a bit more political this time around, saying:
I just want to speak about the liberty spirit in the Hong-Kong streets and encourage the people to stay independant as they want. For Vietnam, I wanted to use the star of their national flag. This one represent the people: farmers, students, workers, intellectuals and soldiers, whose fight together for their independance…
