Ulay, Jürgen Klauke and Ulay (duel), 10.5 x 8.5 cm, Polaroid, 1971


Artists in this exhibition: Ulay


Ulay: Come On

Avenue Louise, Brussels
Private View: Thursday 12 May 2016, 6–9pm
Exhibition continues to 17 July    

Celebrated as one of the most influential performance artists of his generation, MOT International presents Ulay's first solo exhibition in Brussels. Referencing his 1970s series Anagrammatic Bodies, new photo collages feature German actresses Nina Hoss and Iris Berben, together with models Lily McMenamy and Stella Lucia, while works from the artist’s photographic archive cumulatively recount his nomadic, itinerant life over the past forty years. 

The exhibition includes rarely-presented projects produced during his career defining collaboration with Marina Abramović, such as the artist's extensive personal documentation of 1988's The Great Wall Walk in diaries, drawings and a pair of seven metre scrolls, in addition to photographs recording the artist's time in the Central Australian Desert (1979) with members of the aboriginal Pintubi community.  

Addressing the artist's continued interest in dismanteling constructs of self-identification and gender, early Polaroid self-portraits, performances and collaborations with Jürgen Klauke offer an extraordinary opportunity to survey Ulay's radical contributions to photography and performance history.  

Ulay was born in Solingen, Germany in 1943 and lives and works in Amsterdam and Ljubliana. Upcoming and recent exhibitions include ULAY, Schirn Kunsthalle, Frankfurt; Invisible Opponent, Musées d’art et d’histoire, Geneva; Ulay: Polaroids, Nederlands Fotomuseum, Rotterdam; The Touch of Art, Museum Tinguely, Basel (2016) and In Vivo: Ulay, Musée d’Art Moderne, Centre Georges Pompidou, Paris (2015).
