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