Coasts, 2016

Basel 2016
Sies + Höke
Berlin-based artist Daniel Gustav Cramer’s exhibitions often consist of an installation of individual elements – photographs, sculpture, text, sound – that allow a glimpse into the very personal and poetic universe of the artist. Coasts, a sound installation placed in the first-floor rooms of a townhouse currently undergoing renovation, is Cramer’s first presentation of his archive of recordings taken in various coastal regions spanning the continents from Darwin, Australia to Ericeira, Portugal to Santa Monica, California. The architecture of the building creates a purely individual experience for the visitor who can listen to a singular recording or, by walking through the spaces, experience the overlap of a multitude of recordings.
