Collage is an art form considered to be two dimensional. It consists of layering images to build a new image, a whole from many disparate parts. Rarely does collage enter different disciplines but elements of the practice can appear in music, film, performance, design, writing, and more. Cutting and pasting—the actions that make collage—are embedded into our culture now: we are all collage artists in our own way.
Then there is the work of Miwa Matreyek, an artist and performer whose work proves that collage is more than the couple of dimensions that we give it. Instead of cutting and pasting one piece of paper to another, why not cut a piece of paper and paste it to a sound? Why not cut a movement and paste it to a lighting effect? Why not cut a concept and paste it to an entire set of physical actions? This is how Miwa approaches collage: it isn’t an art form locked in a binary but is an entryway to experimentation.
