Ulla von Brandenburg – A Color Notation

This spring, the Musée Jenisch Vevey 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, the artist 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, the woman to whom the museum owes its existence and who, like the artist, was attached to the city of Hamburg.
