Amalia Ulman (1989) is an airport-based artist with an office in Downtown LA. Born in Argentina but raised in Spain, she studied Fine Arts at Central Saint Martins in London.
Her works, which are primarily voiced in the first person, blur the distinction between the artist and object of study, often creating humorous gentle deceptions, while exploring class imitation, and the relationship between consumerism and identity. Her multidisciplinary practice has involved the use of social media, magazine photoshoots, interviews, self-promotion and brand endorsements as tools for the fabrication of fictional narratives.
Her recent solo exhibitions include Intolerancia, Barro, Buenos Aires (2017); Labour Dance, Arcadia Missa, London (2016); Reputation, New Galerie, Paris (2016); Annals of Private History, Frieze Projects (2015) and Stock Images of War, James Fuentes LLC, New York, NY (2015). She currently lives and works in Los Angeles and Gijón. Amalia's Instagram
Like in most of her artworks, there's a narrative element in Amalia Ulman's latest installation. Here, the spectator -or user- becomes part of the piece by wandering through the dream-like environments that are the rooms which compose the labyrinthine structure of Intolerance.
