Coasts, 2016

Sound installation at Art Basel Parcours with Sies + Höke Galerie
curated by Samuel Leuenberger

From 13.6.2016 to 19.6.2016

Coasts is a sound installation placed in rooms of the first floor of a town house. The house that was just recently abandoned is now in between being refurbished and handed over to the new owners. The project is the first presentation of Cramer ́s archive of recordings, which were taken over the last years in various coastal regions spanning from Darwin in Australia to Ericeira in Portugal, Yakushima in Japan to Santa Monica in California. The architecture of the building allows the visitor to listen to a singular recording or, by walking through the spaces, experience and control the overlap of a multitude of recordings.
