About The Artwork

Kollasch has been making paper collages since 2008. He began folding in 2014 and, after a period of experimentation, settled on a basic shape: the triangle. By using a wide variety of used and new papers and finding ever new forms of folding, a variety of unique pieces emerges that is based on sustainability and seems to know no end. The paper works are assembled in display cases. This classical presentation conveys a basic order in which the individual foldings combine to form a collection unit. Here Kollasch refers to entomological collections that were created in the 18th century for scientific interest or aesthetic reasons. For Kollasch, however, these are not dead prepared animals, but "Falter - For those who do not like dead animals". The basic form of the Falter is the triangle, which Kollasch shapes through a varying number and variety of folding steps, thus constantly finding new forms. In this way, variants of Falter are created, which can appear dynamic or calm, soft or pointed, open or closed. The respective color, grain and pattern of the material used contributes to further individualization. The serial work, the repetition of similar forms and materials, which are, however, never exactly the same, makes up the very own and fascinating characteristics of Kollasch's Falterwelt. In this artwork, Kollasch uses just only different banknotes.

Kollasch was born on a sunny september day in 1973. His medium is the paper. All his works are unique and handmade. He works in a classical manner, with a sharp blade, scissors and glue. His first solo exhibition was in 2013 with “MEGAURBANPOLIS”, in which he described his Utopian landscapes, which mostly consist of buildings in which we live and work. He is particularly concerned with depth of field and perspectives in the development of his collage work. Further translation of architecture into geometric figures and forms, culminates in his ongoing series “figura architectura”. Another focus of his artworks are his experience with folded paper, which he has composed so far in showcases, in photographs or illustrations. Particularly popular is the series: “Falter - Für alle, die keine toten Tiere mögen”, in which he presents his paper folds like butterflies in a frame. The special thing is that each butterfly is handmade from its own shape and different used paper materials. Among them can also be banknotes, old identity documents or silk-paper. The series is about diversity, variety and protection of animals. In his work the recycling of used materials, sustainability and the collection of long-forgotten images also play a role, which he brings to light again by integrating them into a new context. Since 2014 he participates in the collagistas festival, which takes place every year in a different country. Kollasch lives and works in Berlin.
