DEATH OF A KING – ULLA VON BRANENBURG

Ulla von Brandenburg’s installation Death of a King highlights the architectural peculiarities of the place while at the same time underlining its role. It evolves on a platform with two levels, and readopts the structure of a skateboard ramp which the visitor is free to explore. A painting on the ground giving a trompe-l’oeil account of a colored, pleated curtain with a Harlequin motif, seemingly escaped from the Commedia dell’Arte, covers the whole surface. Thus a parable about theater emanates from this installation and this space, located between fiction and reality, a sort of sign indicating the start of a story.
