Born in 1985 in Koblenz, Germany. Lives and works in Berlin, Germany.
With a background in painting and graphic design, and influences from music and street art, Clemens Behr creates sculptural, site-specific installations out of collaged construction detritus and other remnants of urban living. Behr is inspired by locally-specific architectures and the imperfect ways in which cities evolve as eclectic structural environments. His installations develop organically out of available materials in response to particular elements of the buildings and spaces around his exhibition sites. Yet rather than merely mimicking the immediate vicinity, Behr’s works seem to scramble the coding. Instead of one-to-one extensions of the locations, Behr’s works are uncontrolled, latticed outgrowths of the world around them.
