In The Form Of The Stories

C-PLATFORM × Jens Pfeifer


Project Description

In this salon, Jens shares his creation inspiration and creation experience.

 “People need stories to orient themselves in the world, and even when the magic goes  the myth stays: in the form of the stories through which we relate to ourselves and the things around us in order to make sense of that world ”. Jens Pfeiper wrote in his book.

Jens was grown up in a forest in German and the memories, smells and the longings of that place in childhood are retained in his work. Being brought up in a forest, animals and the forest itself form a familiar and ever returning image in his work.

Yet, underneath that layer of playful, narrative discourse between man and nature hides a subtle element of mysterious discomfort. The works of Jens Pfeiper often narrate his “story shape” via the possible conveying of material forms and shapes.
