Daniel Gustav Cramer

In his publications Daniel Gustav Cramer works with hybrid narrative forms ranging from visual to literary. His use of language and image creates various narrative atmospheres, like between two poles a tale begins to float:
“In the summer of 2001 we spent two weeks in Cala Moraia, Mallorca. From our hotel balcony we saw locals gathering regularly in the shade of a group of trees to play boule. We would sit there for hours, in the heat of the day, not talking much. I remember falling asleep and waking up again. After sunset the lights of the nearby bars and restaurants illuminated the promenade, the leaves and our faces.”

Rainbow is a work by Daniel Gustav Cramer for Fotexolutions (Freiburg). Fotoexolutions is a project by Hoesl & Mihaljevic based on Duchamps Readymade Malheureux (1919), a work he created by posting written instructions to his sister Suzanne.
“… Please apply nine layers of paint onto the walls of the exhibition space in the order and for the duration as listed. Please take a photograph of each state during the process from an angle which you may decide. Also, could you please keep the empty buckets of paint? The only public event shall be a finissage to be held in the evening of 10.11.2016 …”

Tales 10

Aeropuerto Lisboa, Portugal, March 2006.
Tales is an ongoing publication series. Minimal in content and form each publication captures something worth seeing, sometimes it is only a banal gesture.
“Every photograph I take is taken with the hope that a possible narrative will unfold. Later, in the studio, I can see whether a sequence can actually be found that will yield a small story from the various pictures – or from one individual photograph. It is through repetition of a similar image that these narratives begin to emerge. Often almost invisible changes can generate the most intense moments.”
