For the reopening of the Palais de Tokyo, Ulla von Brandenburg is taking over the Agora, the central space in the new Palais de Tokyo with a site-specific installation.
Ulla von Brandenburg (b. 1974, lives and works in Paris) develops a polymorphous body of work (installations, films, watercolors, mural paintings, cut-outs…) the staging of which is adjusted according to the exhibition space. Mastering the codes of set design, the artist always knows how to adapt her works according to the context, creating oneiric fictions, likely to awaken ghosts. Adept at deploying illusions and mysteries, the artist develops a choreographic imagery. Playing with textures and motifs, deriving inspiration from German Romanticism, reactivating the tradition of “tableaux vivants”, the artist analyzes the current world through references of “fin de siècle” Europe, while at the same taking her place in a dazzling contemporaneity.
