Ulla von Brandenburg

Ulla von Brandenburg has a richly complex and multifaceted practice that is realised through a combination of black & white film, installation, performance, drawing, and painting. The vocabulary of von Brandenburg’s work comes from a basis of using approaches and methods of the theatre, the stage, and rules of performance to engage with cultural or social issues from different moments in history to explore how stories, rituals, and symbols of the past have constituted our societies. Permeated by recurring themes and images sourced from literature; expressionist theatre; early cinema, and pre-Freudian psychoanalysis, von Brandenburg’s practice cross-references back and forth between media creating a language that loops back on itself: endlessly repeating and developing. Concerned with ‘the borders of different consciousness: past and present, alive and dead, real and illusionary’, von Brandenburg creates work positioned uncertainly at the point at which reality ends and the illusion of life, emotions and events begins.
