CAMP-Festival 2020 | Ursula Scherrer

Ursula Scherrer

“The Celts were not concerned with perfecting harmony but rather with inner movement when confronted with the eternity beyond the realm of time. Their intuitive realization of the transience of all reality led them to seek the seemingly unreal.” Lancelot Lengyel

The poetic quality of Scherrer’s work draws viewers into Being and allows them to become immersed in their own story. A situation transforms itself into an abstract portrait consisting of forms, colors, and light. Scherrer’s journey began with dance and choreography, and continued with photography, video, text, mixed media, and performance art. Space, light, and time intertwine inextricably.

Ursula Scherrer was born in Switzerland, lived for more than 30 years in New York and is currently looking for a place to live and work in Europe.
