Kramer finds her inspiration sources in everyday life. Like a researcher, she notes how we interact with mundane objects and sheds light on the absurdity of household items we take for granted. Like cigarette lighters and salt and pepper shakers in the shape of women’s bodies, ovens or carnival masks.
She translates found objects into a different, often valuable medium such as clay and porcelain and then amplifies or resizes them, producing them in series, such as the work Idols XS Paris. The miniatures combine a wild array of female figures in everchanging compositions.
The constellations flirt with different references. Art historical tropes such as a pieta, a reclining nude reminiscent of an odalisque or romantic scenes from ordinary life. The variations seem an unending transformation process of possibilities.Posted by
