In the Multiscape series, Palsgraaf examines the effects of architectural urban expansion through sculptural forms. The invasive qualities of this growth is apparent in his embedding of cityscapes into taxidermic animals. In this series, the often combative relationship between nature and culture is explored and even questioned by viewer as the tumorous city seems to overcome the animal and bring it to its knees.
In his related series of paintings, Palsgraaf’s focuses on the perspective his sculptures cannot reach. In these clandestine interiors, the viewer discovers deserted rooms, damp corridors and ceilings in danger of sudden collapse. Revealing their decline, Palsgraaf’s environments of men are slowly reclaimed by nature.
