Highlights from dOCUMENTA(13). Haris Epaminonda and Gustav Cramer

Uncategorized

 

Haris Epaminda and Gustav Cramer’s installation The End of Summer at the Hauptbahnof had the feeling of walking through a museum in which the exhibits were hidden. The hang made me intently aware of the manner in which I was viewing the work; frames were butted up to the edge of the wall, hidden behind doors or behind plinths, whilst emphasizing the passing of time; both in reference to the repetition and recreation of photographic works and the inclusion in the display of oblique texts, referring to a historical past. There was an element of play with the display that I found poetic ; a rumble of historical time repeated, balanced and poised in object and image.
