Clara Ursitti often works with scent and social space, creating ephemeral installations and interventions. She has a long-standing commitment to navigating the space between the visible object and what we cannot see, but can feel and exerts an influence on us. Underlying her practice is an obsession with what is invisible, either literally (through the non – visual senses), or metaphorically (through dominant social relations or attitudes).
Ursitti has exhibited widely and was commissioned by The Collective Gallery, Edinburgh to present a major new work as part of the Edinburgh Festival of Art, 2017.
Her work was recently included in the survey exhibitions: Belle Haleine, Museum Tinguely, Basel, (2015) and Generation: 25 Years of Contemporary Art in Scotland (2014).
Recent exhibitions include Sex Smells at the Kunstverein, Wolfsburg, Germany, (2016), and There is Something in the Air, Museum Villa Rot, Burgrieden – Rot, Germany (2015).

Five Glasgow-based artists have made new works installed in a small number of independent shops across the city, in response to the specific character of each location.
Ranging from small sculptures to fake products, videos, prints, printed fabrics, publications and scents, they will be integrated into the normal fixtures, displays and stock so subtly as to be almost invisible in some instances. The project is a celebration of the particularities and eccentricities of the host shops, each of which embody something of the character of Glasgow as a whole.
Supported by Glasgow International, Bill’s Tool Store, Fabric Bazaar, Garnethill Stores, Tam Shepherd’s Trick Shop and Trongate News.
