Clara Ursitti

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).
