The German author Clemens Behr doesn't need much to work with: cardboard boxes, scotch tape and paints. Clemens uses this cheap material to construct stunning installations that play with space and often confuse viewers.
Clemens Behr creates simple geometric shapes from cardboard and scotch tape, which he places on the floor, walls, ceilings of the room. The second part of the installation consists of the same geometric shapes, but already painted with paint. Together, the combination of volumetric figures and flat drawings looks so holistic and harmonious that it is not always easy to understand where the cardboard object is in the photograph, and where is its drawn "copy".
The choice of material for creativity Clemens Behr explains very simply. Cardboard and tape are available to anyone and everyone: they are cheap and always very easy to get hold of. In addition, working with these materials does not involve the use of electricity, any complex devices, and the process itself takes little time. Installations by Clemens Behr can be seen not only in galleries, but also in public places: on the streets, in subway cars and sometimes even outside the city, for example, in the field.
Clemens Behr was born in 1985 in Koblenz (Germany) and currently lives and works in Dortmund. He is a student at the University of Applied Siences, Dortmund, where he studies graphic design. The young author has already had four solo exhibitions over the past two years: two in Dortmund (2008, 2010) and one each in Marseille (2009) and Barcelona (2010).
