Schildt, Ulla

Fotografi, video, installasjon

I work mainly with analogue and digital photography and video. Recurring themes in my works are archives and collections. My recent project, “The Garden” includes images of Botanical gardens and parks representing artificially created nature. The work reflects people´s desire to create order and at the same time master the natural environment. Furthermore, the work examines the affects of climate change and human induced ravage of the existing nature that will have consequences difficult to predict or to control.
