Ulla von Brandenburg - A Color Notation
9 March to 27 May 2018
This spring, the Musée Jenisch gives free rein to Ulla von Brandenburg (b. 1974), an internationally renowned German artist based in Paris. Better known for her films than her drawings, Ulla von Brandenburg will be turning the spotlight on this less visible aspect of her work. Collages, large watercolour drawings and shadow puppetry figures will form part of a large-scale installation specially created for Vevey, in which the exhibition space is transformed into a wasteland theatre where temporalities and cultures blend together. Part workshop and part cabinet of curiosities, the project is a tribute to Fanny Jenisch (1801–1881), the woman to whom the museum owes its existence and who, like the artist, was attached to the city of Hamburg.
Vernissage Thursday 8 March at 6.30 p.m.
