PAPERCUTS BY PETER CALLESEN No.2


‘on the other side’, 2006 (wedgewood commission, nottingham castle, UK)

danish artist peter callesen doesn’t so much create works on paper, but rather works from paper.
callesen uses paper as his medium, creating sculptural works by folding paper. but his work is
more complicated thann cutting and pasting pieces of paper. each work is made by cutting a
single sheet and using only the removed paper to create figures or buildings. these sheets can
be as small as a4 size or as big as 7m by 5m. callesen states, ‘my paper works have been
based around an exploration of the relationship between two and three dimensionality. I find this
materialization of a flat piece of paper into a 3d form almost a magic process.’ the meticulous
works definitely hold a sense of wonder that comes from their precise detail capture through
such a common material.
