His draped and folded fabric works depart from the stretcher, questioning as well as clinging to it. Camp glittery sequins and silky red and pink, taking inspiration from fashion, play with redefining preconceived notions of the body. In the work, the folds in the material function as an interface between inside/outside, depth/surface, being/appearing. The work dances between restraint and release and folds itself both outwards and inwards. Appelberg holds a master in Fine art from UdK Berlin and Valand Academy and has been involved in several artist led initiatives.
