ULAY

11 January - 23 February 2019

ULAY is an unclassifiable artist whose trajectory amounts to a radically and historically unique oeuvre operating at the intersection of photography and the conceptually-oriented approaches of Performance and Body art. 

 

His first exhibition with Richard Saltoun Gallery, and his first in London since 2013, focuses on the artist's remarkable photography and his long-standing commitment to exploring and expanding the medium. Starting with Ulay’s early works in Polaroid from the 1970s, the exhibition spans to include performative photography, featuring new works exhibited to the public for the first time, as well as a film of one of his most important actions: Irritation - There is a Criminal Touch to Art (1976). The exhibition has been curated by Birte Kleemann.
