STILL MOVING: THE FILMS AND PHOTOGRAPHS OF ULRIKE OTTINGER
The Hunterian presents a solo exhibition of moving image works and photographs by the internationally renowned filmmaker and artist Ulrike Ottinger, accompanied by a retrospective screening of her key films.
Among Ottinger’s major works are the ‘Berlin Trilogy’ (1979-1984), the feature film Johanna d’Arc of Mongolia (1989) – an incredible journey on the Trans-Siberian Railway that takes a motley company of western women to the wilds of Inner Mongolia – and, applying an ethnographic lens to marginal European cultures, Twelve Chairs (2004) and Southeast Passage (2002).
Supported by Glasgow International and the Goethe Institut.
Exhibition review in The Guardian:
Transgressive, erotic, alarming, unconscionable and marvellous, Ottinger’s work is a call to artistic freedom and formal rigour. Life-affirming and dangerous, she is an accidental mentor to the best younger artists here, and a rejoinder to mediocrity, to things I prefer not to recall. (Adrian Searle, 20/04/2018)
