Clemens Behr has cultivated his predilection for DIY strategies around the world, characterized by an intensive exploration of the public space, equipped with an inclination towards everyday materials such as wood and cardboard and a large portion of improvisation. Flexibility, modesty that borders on needlessness, intuition and courage for appropriation and misappropriation are the characteristic dispositions that characterize his artist profile. Behr studied at the UDK in Berlin.
At the core of Behr's mostly space-specific work, which is equally localized both inside and outside, is the principle of collage and its spatial unfolding in the assemblage. In the manner of a bricolage, Clemens Behr produces partly enormous installations, wall sculptures and sculptures from finds, remnants of social use, waste from the streets, objects trouvés and generally reused materials.
Behr has shown his works around the world including solo shows at Clockwise, Loom Gallery, Milan, Mirus Galerie, San Francisco, Mini Galerie, Amsterdam, Underdogs Gallery, Lisboa, Lynfabrikken Box Aarhus, Denmark, Karena Schuessler Gallery, Berlin, Akershus Kunstsenter Lillestroem, Norway, Special Purpose Solutions, Rojo Artspace, Milan, Lieux-Communs, Namur, Belgium, Flat Forest, Sun Gallery, Munich, and Galerie Seize, Marseille.
