Curating, It Has a Golden Sun and an Elderly Grey Moon, Musée Matisse, Nice
"It Has a Golden Sun and an Elderly Gray Moon" is the first film that artist Ulla von Brandenburg has dedicated to color. This film - shot on the main stage of Nanterre-Amandiers- is a long sequence shot, without editing, a “danced film”.
“From the moment color entered one of my films, I decided that the film would be dedicated to it. The dancers are in a white space, each holding a brightly tinted sheet. ", Explains the artist.
This video which, in its own way and through gesture, implements cutting, color and the body resonates with Matisse's work to be rediscovered at the museum.
Born in 1974 in Karlsruhe, Ulla von Brandenburg lives and works in Paris. She uses various mediums and forms of different scales and supports.
