Ulrika Sparre - Ear To The Ground
|Art And Theory Publishing
In her work, Ulrika Sparre investigates the mechanisms, behaviours, and social patterns that constitute our lives. The starting point for ‘Ear to the Ground’ is a search for the spiritual and physical in nature, and how these relationships are created and transformed. Moving through the archipelago of Stockholm, across the desert of Death Valley, and into caves in South Africa, Sparre explores rocks in their various forms and shapes. Along the way, the artist performs several field recordings of stones in which she reflects on what we perceive and take with us from an experience in rugged nature. With essays by Johan Redin, Virginia MacKenny, Jacquelyn Davis, and others.
