Bear / Mark (Bear) von Behrens

Canberra based geographer, carpenter and artist, Mark (bear) von Behrens is most comfortable when working with his hands and body to create physical objects he can touch, feel, navigate through or around, manipulate and otherwise interact with.

A monolithic timber sculpture made from railroad sleepers, towering four meters above the Nishi Gallery in the John Avery Gardens will be Bear’s monumental addition to the Art, Not Apart Festival.
