The works in Henriksen’s series of paper sculptures, which the artist began in 2003, were initially a reaction to working on large-scale, expensive, often bureaucratic projects. The rolls of store-bought wallpaper they are made from are cheap and easy to acquire, and the works have a spontaneity and a nervousness – even ‘a kind of hopelessness’ – that Henriksen finds appealing. He says: ‘They frustrated me with their fragility. I do not know exactly what they are – they are “doubt”, they are nonverbal. I do not know what I'm going with them, what they should be titled, or how to preserve them.’
