TWS Broadcast. Episode 08: Andrea Burgay. Time, decay and hope.

Andrea Burgay is a Brooklyn based artist and editor. Her works combines collage, sculpture and found materials to elevate the overlooked and mundane via transformative physical processes. And, indeed, there’s a strong physical and material component to her work, with layers of paper, paint and other materials accumulating and forming abstract and expressive gestures.

Andrea is also the founder and editor or one of our favourite editorial adventures: Cut Me Up magazine, a participatory and curatorial project which publishes works created with artworks made by deconstructing and transforming the previous editions of the magazine.

Because we love Andrea’s work and projects, and because she’ll be joining the Weird Show team interviewing her favourite artists, we wanted to talk with her and find out more about her work and ideas.
