London-trained Danish artist Peter Callesen draws, performs and creates site-specific sculptures. I’m most intrigued by his papercut works, which range from small A4-sized pieces to room-scaled installations whose impeccable craftsmanship and dream-like forms reference the romanticism of traditional fairy tales.
Above, Fire Escape Unable to Escape Fire and detail; below, Mirage III and detail.
These are mind blowing. How do you take the “vocab” of cut paper and pop-up and making it elegant and mysterious.
I’m a big fan of scherenschnitte, but Callesen’s work is on a whole other level. The imagery references magical themes, and his medium is certainly magical to me. His large-scale papercuts are even more mind-blowing, I think.
