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.

  • Patrick Pound: Windows
    Publication
    Perimeter
    International
    In Windows, Pound’s first photobook with Perimeter Editions, we find a cross-section of images lifted from a single category in Pound’s vast collection of 70,000 photographs. Each of the ‘found’ photographs in this new book features a window seen from the outside. We are allowed to look through them, from the privacy of our own homes. We see ghostly figures and happy families; we see actors acting, and everyday folks acting up; we see real and imagined worlds. (more…)

    Beam Editions
    International
    In 1978 Grey Crawford created a body of colour photographic work that was so radical in its aesthetic and technique that few people to this day understand how it was made. Chroma documents late 70s Los Angeles in a period of radical urban transformation. Scenes of vernacular architecture, demolition sites and everyday places are contrasted with graphic forms that float on the surface and sit within the image. (more…)
