EXHIBITION: NOTHING IS FOREVER, 25 JUNE – 19 SEPTEMBER 2010
Ernst Caramelle exhibited in the group exhibition Nothing is Forever, 2010, presenting hand-painted blocks of colour which transformed three domestic-scale galleries into abstract works of art. Nothing is Forever celebrated the completion of the SLG’s £2 million building project, bringing together wall paintings, drawings and text pieces by 20 British and international artists. Seamlessly integrating art and architecture, and with each work destined to be embedded in the fabric of the buildings when painted over at the end of the show, Nothing is Forever marked an important and transitional moment in the South London Gallery’s history.

Ernst Caramelle (b. Hall in Tyrol, Austria, 1952.) From 1970-76 he attended the University of Applied Art in Vienna. In 1981, he started his teaching career at the Städelschule in Frankfurt on the Main, continuing 1986-90 at the University of Applied Art in Vienna, as well as at other international institutions. Since 1994, he has been a professor at the Karlsruhe Art Academy. He lives in Karlsruhe, Frankfurt, and New York. Caramelle’s artistic approach stands in the tradition of concept art, which considers the idea as equal to the artistic product, whether realized or not. Since the eighties he has involved himself in mural painting, as he did also on the occasion of his participation in Documenta IX 1992 in Kassel.
