Peter Callesen was born 1967 in Denmark. His paper works have lately been based around an exploration of the relationship between two and three dimensionality. His collection of works on A4 sheets of paper are amazing. Identifying A4 paper as the most common and consumed media and format for carrying information today. Callesen perceives the A4 paper material as something very loaded, yet the actual materiality of which is rarely noticed. By removing all the information and starting from scratch using blank white 80gsm A4 paper as a base for his creations, he has found a material which, on one hand, we all are able to relate to, and which on the other hand is non-loaded and neutral and therefore easier to fill with different meanings. The thin white paper also gives the paper sculptures a fragility which underlines the tragic and romantic theme of the works.
