Artist of the Collection

Ulla Von Brandenburg

Born in 1974 at Karlsruhe, Allemagne

The work of Ulla von Brandenburg employs theatre and stage design through a variety of media. Her imagination is inspired by the aesthetics of fin-de-siècle Europe where occultism, literature, imagery, and psychoanalysis were intertwined. In light of these past resurgences, the artist approaches the present through skilful and polymorphic stagings.

Born in 1974 in Karlsruhe, Ulla von Brandenburg studied scenography in her native city and visual arts in Hamburg before receiving the Marcel Duchamp Prize in 2016. She is represented by the galleries Art:Concept (Paris), Produzentengalerie (Hamburg), Meyer Riegger (Karlsruhe), and Pilar Corrias (London). She lives and works in Paris.
