Ula’s expanded art practice explores the intrinsic connection between destruction and creation.  The almost weightless humble materials employed in creating this site-aware installation consists of broken shells saved from all the eggs she’s consumed for more than 8 years. The shells are first soaked to release their inner membrane, ‘tattooed’ with text, and  arranged on a textured terrain of unwound tapes displaced from old cassettes.  The ongoing exploration is about time, consumption, the weight and fragility of words: direct, cryptic, or unspoken, to diminish and/or empower.  Over time messages we are exposed to become ‘imprints.’  What messages do we embrace, or challenge?   Language has limitations which often supersede our immediate affectivity of sensory and visceral experience, yet also has great potential to connect and reach us.  A shell alludes to both protection and limitation. The tapes reflect personal and cultural conditioned recordings looped in our mind.

 

The Unwinding Destiny Project…

“SHADOW-LANDS”  art exhibit:  a study of visual agency in art and architecture 
includes The Unwinding Destiny Project...my text based work employing humble materials. The ongoing exploration is about time, consumption, the potential of words, how they diminish, empower, and over time,  inform our beliefs.
April 18 – May, 2012  
Deakin University Exhibition Gallery, Geelong, Victoria, Australia

Initiated in 2008, I continue to create and shoot temporary installations above and below ground.

The 26 artists showing installations included Yoko Ono’s The Wishing Tree installed next to my ongoing installation/photography The Unwinding Destiny Project.
