Ursula Schulz–Dornburg – Some Works
I tend to find my internal images in lonely landscapes, as well as in places that get lost in the world.” Ursula Schulz-Dornburg, who has become internationally known through her many exhibitions in Europe, the Middle East, and the United States, creates her work on extended journeys. She often seeks out archaic, barren landscapes, places of great stillness, which seem to maintain a delicate balance between emergence and decay. The black-and-white pictures—of the marshes in southern Iraq, for instance, or of church ruins in Armenia, the chambers of caves along the Georgian-Azerbaijan border in the cliffs of the Transcaucasians, the remains of the Hejaz railway in western Saudi Arabia, or deteriorating bus stops in Armenia—bring to mind the looming decay of our cultural legacy and are thus unique documents of time. Our Collector’s Edition by Ursula Schulz-Dornburg is a real treasure chest: inside a box is a print on top-quality FB photographic paper of the minimally decorated, beautifully simple shop window of a Chinese nail store in 1972. Booklets on individual groups of works, cards, and a poster on featuring selected works, a map, statements by Lawrence Weiner, and an essay by Wolfgang Scheppe round out this opulent edition.
