Street Art: By Clemens Behr
Origami and architecture
German artist Clemens Behr uses the simplest materials to create complex ephemeral architectures, which fill gallery spaces with origami-like structures. Working with recycled materials and basic geometric forms, Behr dreams up installations that result in subtle confusions between 2D painting and 3D objects. Not content with the confines of gallery spaces, Behr has taken his work into the public sphere, building peculiar appendages in metro cars and erecting detailed miniature cities on street corners.
Clemens Behr was born in 1985, lives in Dortmund/Germany and is currently studying graphic design. To describe Clemens Behr’s art is difficult, to understand it is near impossible. If it were one was able to visualize the workings of physics and mathematics, then Behr’s installations would be as close a representation as possible. He seems to be the embodiment of Salvador Dali in an Origami master’s body.
