Acclaimed German artist, Ulla von Brandenburg, explores her distinct visual language that draws on the traditions and tropes of theatre, film and storytelling in a new film and installation created for Aarhus. Von Brandenburg’s works, characterised by their use of curtains, costumes, props and staged settings, draws on a range of historical references, including the tableau vivant, modern theatre, folk traditions and iconic architecture. Combined with song and movement, these elements suggest a symbolic staging of ritualised encounters that are central to her oeuvre.
Von Brandenburg’s practice displays a deep engagement with the traditions of craft, music, colour theory and the construction of narratives, both real and imagined. With a unique signature style that brings film, architecture and installation together, her works explore the relationships between people and the different levels of collective consciousness.
