Ulla von Brandenburg’s work develops itself in a variety of mediums and forms, on different scales and with the help of various media: films, performances, installations and objects, music, drawings... If the ensemble draws inspiration from literature, art history and film, architecture and theater, it is a large and complex work that Ulla von Brandenburg builds, bringing human crafts and practices at the center. Showing great interest in popular ceremonies, minority societies and the subject of ritual in general, Ulla von Brandenburg creates images which gradually distance themselves from reality and shift our expectations. Abstraction, collage, colorimetry, psychoanalysis, bodily and costume patterns, gesture as form are all research sources from which the artist nourishes her work.
