About Ilka Kramer

Ilka Kramer is a photographer whose work challenges the perception of space and reality, through her figurative and architecturally inspired images. Continually investigating the flattening of three-dimensional space into a two-dimensional surface, the artist’s MalaNazar series engages this exploration while drawing on our dissolution with nature through staged, perceived images.

STATEMENT

“Normally we don't pay much attention to the zone around us, we react to objects or persons, but we are not aware about the open space in between them and ourselves. And yet, without this sort of 'emptiness' there wouldn't be any movement, or transformation, no distance, no view, no possibility of connection. Space is a condition of live.

In my work I'm interested in this space as a possibility to relay to something we are all part of. The consciousness of our body as a space by itself in connection with the space around it, and therefore in communication with everything else, can create a strong spiritual experience.”- Ilka Kramer
