SCHLAMM – Ulu Braun
APRIL 29 – MAY 20 2017
As he passed by, he saw a man blind from birth […] he spit on the ground and made mud with the saliva. Then he anointed the man’s eyes with the mud and said to him, “Go, wash in the pool of Siloam”. […] So he went and washed and came back seeing. (John, 9)
Relief projections, videocollages and sculptures – specially created for the exhibition – were presented in an ambitious mixed media installation for the very first time. The show was the official start of a new production cycle by Ulu Braun.
From April 28th, a large sludge slide has flooded the rosalux art space and mutated the White Cube into a psychogrammatic cave where the insatiable need to know and understand everything and the blind law of „business as usual“ was temporarily neutralized.
Ulu Braun (born in 1976) is a German visual artist and filmmaker. His video collages and films are situated along the boundary between contemporary art and film d’auteur.
