For two decades, the Danish artist, Peter Callesen, has animated paper in his hands, from miniature works in A4 format to large installations on a human scale. With surgical precision, Callesen cuts silhouettes out of the flat paper, which he transforms into three-dimensional figures and imaginative narratives. Life and death, magnificent nature, the fragile human being and the thin-skinned artist are themes that Callesen boldly approaches in his white works.
