BOULE by Daniel Gustav Cramer
20 x 29cm, 16 pages, full colour offset printing throughout, saddle stitched, edition of 350, 2012.
'In his publications Daniel Gustav Cramer works with hybrid narrative forms* ranging from visual to literary. His use of language and image creates various narrative atmospheres, like between two poles a tale begins to float:
'In the summer of 2001 we spent two weeks in Cala Moraia, Mallorca. From our hotel balcony we saw locals gathering regularly in the shade of a group of trees to play boule. We would sit there for hours, in the heat of the day, not talking much. I remember falling asleep and waking up again. After sunset the lights of the nearby bars and restaurants illuminated the promenade, the leaves and our faces.''
