SUSANNE KRIEMANN: DUSKDUST. Ed. by Susanne Kriemann and Livia Paldi. Baltic Art Center, Visby, 2016. Published in association with Sternberg Press, Berlin. Distributed in the U.S.A. by Ram Publications, Santa Monica. 86 pp. 30 x 17 cm. ISBN 9783956792366 In English.
Publisher's description: A literal mountain of industrial debris is the subject of Berlin-based photographic artist Susanne Kriemann's second artist book from Sternberg. Now a nature preserve and site of an eco-hotel, the former limestone mining site is located on the northeastern edge of the Swedish island Gotland. Over the course of this compact but lushly illustrated book, Kriemann's portraits of the massive pile of cement tailings at different times of day and under different weather conditions kaleidoscope into multiple images that become almost cinematic. The images are followed by insightful and poetic writings by writers Kirsty Bell, Maria Barnas and media theorist Jussi Parikka and conclude with historic photographs of the industrial site. In her expansive projects, Kriemann investigates issues of historiography, archival knowledge and the connections between art, literature and archaeology. As Bell writes, "Waste and ruin, work time and nonwork time, ash and debris, notes, thoughts, experiences. How does material organize itself? From sculpture to mountain; tunnel to camera; sun to furnace; dusk to dust -- this project thrives on analogy."
