Marcel Dzama (previously featured here and here) has once again created a whole microcosm of multi-genre art for his Behind Every Curtain solo show at David Zwirner.

It seems that his natural sense for choreography has transpired into his works on paper which he now beautifully sculpts as papercuts in very haptic dioramas.

And as always, Dzama wouldn't be Dzama without a short movie:

Don't miss this exhibition - Dzama's shows truly are otherworldly.
