*1985 in Dormagen, lives and works in Cologne.

The poetic and spatial installations by Ulrike Schulze consist of puristic works which relate to the figurative or architectural. At first glance, they derive from the tradition of formal minimalism, while at second glance they are outgrow by the delicate and very personal approach to material and space. The intuitive autonomy and manner of emancipation within space are crucial for the artist. Her abstract and corporal works elude a distinct shape and subjectively occupy the space. Small indented or incised spots which overtly expose reactions of the material and let the unobtrusive turn into importance. Through their incidental and silent presence, the works seem to belong to the room and shift into a temporary co-architecture. Thus they become subtle monumental buildings or amorphous occupations which act between grace, aggression, fragility and rudeness.
