What Is Contemporary Anyways.

Art of Now
  1. Clemens Behr

    From Triangulation Blog:

    Clemens Behr's work is based on abstract installations and sculptures built in both public and interior environments. These three-dimensional and volumetric collages which usually are dimensionally huge are made of found recycled ephemera as well as basic building materials such as cardboard, wood, paint, tape and found materials. Into the post there are some works from 2012 but I recommended to see his great portfolio.
    “My work is complicated, inexpensive and improvised…My process all begins with the space, which acts as a basis for planning. The space defines the colors and shapes, as well as any fixing or mounting possibilities and the dimensions of the piece.  I can’t plan that much in advance, because I can never be certain which possibilities and machinery will be available for me to use. Once I have the composition or an idea of the finished piece visualized in my head, I usually begin to paint the cardboard. Then a wooden frame is screwed together onto which the cardboard will be fixed. This occurs very haphazardly. Before I travel to cities like Delhi or Marrakech I do no preparation before. I just look at the city’s colors and shapes and try to adopt it in to my work. In general, the way I work should be a kind of transformation of the architecture. It pulls everything apart and assembles it in a new geometrical disorder. The source of my inspiration can definitely be traced back to the work of Marcel Duchamp and Kurt Schwitters, and I would name Gordon Matta-Clark as my favorite artist.”
