das wort steht im raum – sculptural poetry

Cabinet exhibition in the Centre for Artists‘ publications

Among the fruitful relationships between art and literature, the dialogue between poetry and sculpture plays a special role, but one that has received very little attention.

Ulla von Brandenburg. Eine Landschaft ohne Blau, von ungefähr

The Weserburg presents Ulla von Brandenburg, one of the most exciting, internationally renowned installation artists of her generation in a comprehensive solo exhibition. The artist transforms exhibition spaces into colorful dream worlds and sensual spaces of experience using large-format fabrics, huge installations, intimate objects, playful films, collages, paper cuttings, watercolors and performances. Ulla von Brandenburg emphasizes that "the experience of discovering these spaces, the path, the search, is the actual work of art, not the objects on display".
