As part of his solo exhibition in Le Cube- independent art room, Ulrike Weiss presents an unprecedented installation, Chambre de fille. Assembling drawings, screen projections and manipulation of light, this polysemous project invites the spectator to a total immersion.
A projection on a set of transparent figurines is at the heart of the installation, representing female characters from the tales of the Brother Grimm, and plunging the main hall into a game of alternative light and shadow. The spectator, who is separated from the girl’s room by a curtain of light tulle, can perceive light reflections on the hidden walls. A blow of wind makes the silhouettes move, the whole space follows the movement in a fairy manner.
In another space, Blond venus, a series of eight drawings in Indian ink takes up the theme of virgin girls and their virtue was set.
