Peter Callesen

1967, Denmark

Beauty, fragility and failure comprise the work of Peter Callesen where what seem impossible becomes real. Grotesque or melancholic points are often revealed through surprising narrative discourses. A powerful poetic universe exists in paper works done with an exceptional meticulous technique. In his performances the artist presents himself as main character in a romantic fairy tale world of lost illusions.
