Daniel Gustav Cramer & Haris Epaminonda

 
Daniel Gustav Cramer (born in 1975 in Neuss, Germany, lives and works in Berlin) often begins with a story or an image which evolves imperceptibly. Using series, fragmentation and ellipsis, he creates temporal interstices from one sequence to the next, in-between places which stimulate the imagination. He invites spectators to enter into these narrow openings and to locate their own detours. Daniel Gustav Cramer's works are not directive; they bury themselves in foggy decor stitching a labyrinth of little moments freed from beginning and end.
His work was shown in various exhibition venues including Kunsthaus, Glarus, Badischer Kunstverein in Karlsruhe and Kunsthalle Lisbon. In 2012 he also participated in DOCUMENTA 13 in Kassel.

Haris Epaminonda (born 1980 in Nicosia, Cyprus, lives and works in Berlin) uses video and film, collage, photography, books and objects in an extensive process of assembling and disassembling appropriated materials to reconstruct non-linear narratives. The artist works with found images from the past—sometimes faded travel photographs, or the pages of old nature magazines, ethnographic artifacts or footage from forgotten television programmes. Epaminonda then manipulates the images, cutting and layering, to create new works that feel wholly part of the present.
Haris Epaminonda's work has been presented in several solo exhibitions in some of the leading institutions for contemporary art such as the Museum of Modern Art, NY (2011); the Schirn Kunsthalle, Frankfurt, Germany (2011); Tate Modern, London (2010); and Malmö Konsthall, Sweden (2009). She has also been included in significant group exhibitions, like dOCUMENTA (13), Kassel in 2012, the 2nd Athens Biennale (2009) and the 5th Berlin Biennale (2008). Haris Epaminonda co-represented Cyprus at the Venice Biennale in 2007.

Since 2007, Daniel Gustav Cramer and Haris Epaminonda have been working in partnership on The Infinite Library, a project which has taken the form of books and an archive.
