Video artist Ulu Braun has set up a unique video installation for Galerie b. Sixteen loops from “Birds” and “Untitles Airlines” are assembled to form a complex video sculpture: birds in urban contexts and mud-clad bodies in landscapes overlap to become pictorial loops.
Ulu Braun was born 1976 in Schongau, Germany. He works and lives in Berlin. From 1996 to 2005 he studied painting and experimental film at the University of Applied Arts in Vienna and animation at the Film University Babelsberg in Potsdam.
Ulu Braun has been using the medium of video to explore the field between the visual arts and auteur cinema since 1997. He is one of the key figures who have transferred painting into video art and have played a significant role in defining and further developing the genre of video collage. In 2017 he was awarded for best film in german competition at Kurzfilmtage Oberhausen and the arte Shortfilm Award (Hamburg). Currently he receives the Hans & Charlotte Krull working grant.
Ulu Braun is taking part in the Stuttgart Filmwinter - short films international competition - with his work “The Hostel”
The artist will be present at the gallery opening.
