Gisela Gamper has been photographing and exhibiting for the last 45 years. Since the early 1990's Gamper employed photo montage and more recently digital manipulation to superimpose a variety of textures on female torsos.
In 1999 Gamper started to collaborate and perform with composer David Gamper. For their collaboration See Hear Now, Gisela collects and edits video imagery which she mixes and projects in concert with David's improvised music. In performance, they seek to merge the visual and the sonic in the moment and create an immersing environment which transcends each medium.
In 2000 See Hear Now performed at Knitactive at the Knitting Factory in New York City, Agnes Scott College in Georgia, Stone Ridge Center for the Arts in upstate New York, Bowdoin College in Maine and at Roulette in New York City.
In 1999 Gamper's digital photographs 'Urban Dresses' were exhibited at CEPA Gallery in Buffalo, NY. The Rice Gallery, Albany Institute of History & Art included her prints in the exhibit 'Attention to Detail'.
Among her grants and awards are two Fellowship Grants from the Vermont Council on the Arts in 1985 and 1990, and the Hasselblad Cover Award in 1991. For two concurrent solo exhibtions in New Orleans in 1997, the Contemporary Artists Collection of Station Hill Arts by Barrytown, Ltd. published Fabrications, a catalogue of her photographs with text by Rachel Pollack. Gisela Gamper lives and works in Vermont and in New York City.
