It's tough to talk about the work of Clemens Behr without feeling like you can't do it justice. He's been blowing our minds here at Society6 since the early days of 2009. Before seeing his posts I never realized what you could do with otherwise mundane elements. He covers that in his own words, in his first ever post on Society6:
"Garbagebags and cardboxes are cheap, beautiful, offer a lot of space, are always available, quickly to process, work without electricity and are actually meant for other purposes. Maybe that`s why they trigger my association and by that, develop a special charm, aesthetic and meaning to me..."
Well, they trigger something special in us too. To this day I still look forward to walking through one of his installations and experiencing it first hand. For now, he has been kind enough to share a video of a recent exhibition. Give it a watch and then check out some of his other work.
