Ernst Caramelle
Artist

Ernst Caramelle’s artistic approach stands in the tradition of concept art, which considers the idea as equal to the artistic product, whether realized or not. Since the mid-seventies, Caramelle has created an extremely diverse body of work shifting from video works to drawings, photographs, paintings and wall installations. Using various manifestations of color and geometric form, often applied directly to the walls of an installation space, Caramelle’s work explores the relationship between the art concept and the space it occupies.

Caramelle has had a number of solo exhibitions internationally, including Musée Schloss Hardenberg, Velbert, Germany, Musée Haus Lange, Krefeld, Germany, University Art Museum, Berkeley, Wexter Centre for the Arts, Columbus, Ohio, Kunstverein, Frankfurt, Nationalgalerie, Berlin, and Badischer Kunstverein, Karlsruhe, Germany. Group exhibitions include South London Gallery, London, Musée d’Art Moderne et Contemporain, Strasbourg, Neues Museum Weserburg, Bremen, Museum für angewandte Kunst, Vienna, Museo de Bellas Artes, Caracas, Documenta, Cassel, and the Institute of Contemporary Art, Boston. Since 1994 he has been teaching at the Karlsruhe Art Academy in Karlsruhe, Germany.

    International
    Nhu Xuan Hua delved into the power of memories in a piece of work titled Tropism, Consequences of a Displaced Memory. The work gives a face to those tropisms that describe spontaneous and automatic reactions initiated by vivid emotions in response to primarily needs or past events in life. Based on archival pictures from her family, the digital intervention interprets these memories through a new angle, exploring the effect of dissipation generated by time passing and driven by the forces of an inherited memory.

    Santa Ana, USA
    In the 1980s, a mere 234 warehouses dotted the landscape of the Inland Empire. Today, over 4,000 logistic centers have been implanted across the region in a rapid movement to bring commerce to the region. Once identified by its untouched land, the area has become enveloped by the sprawling network of warehouses that define the region’s skyline.
