Ernst Caramelle was born in Hall, Tyrol in 1952. He has participated in numerous solo and group exhibitions (such as documenta 9) and his works are part of various public collections (such as the MoMa Collection). He has been a professor at the State Academy of Fine Arts Karlsruhe since 1994 and has been its rector since 2012.
Ernst Caramelle’s work encompasses a variety of forms and means of expression. It moves between drawing, painting, mural painting, photography, video, room installation and architecture and is partly classified as conceptual art. For example, a black and white catalogue published in New York in 1979 entitled “Forty Found Fakes” pretends to depict 40 works by renowned artists. In fact, however, these are found photographic material from newspapers and magazines, which rather coincidentally show similarities with these works. Caramelle’s works are full of allusions and reflections on the status of perception and the question of reproduction and unicum, original and fake.
