Micha Ullman


The Israel Museum

This impressive retrospective brought together 40 of Micha Ullman’s sculptures selected from different periods in his 50-year career. It also featured works on paper, as well as documentation of his many site-
specific works, including Library, the underground cell with empty shelves that he dug out in Berlin’s Bebelplatz, the site of the 1933 Nazi book burning. Like its sister-piece Equinox, on the grounds of the Israel Museum, Library offers continually fluctuating viewpoints, set in motion by its shifting cosmic elements, shadows, and reflections. Human-scale, floor-bound objects in Minimalist geometric shapes and works featuring only sand dominated the exhibition. …see the entire review in the print version of April’s Sculpture magazine.
