she wanted introduce her labor. she was really crazy. it was works but only for short time. but
like liked to watch her.

My body is no longer mine, it doubles up, suffers, bleeds, catches cold, put
its teeth in, slobbers, coughs, is covered with pimples and it laughs.

about 8 hours later we went into labor!!!! I truly believe it’s because of my wife’s baby belly Vanilla Ice/

Almost 3 years after the first video, 40 weeks pregnant with 4th child! Dancing this baby out!

Labour dance, the title of ulman’s latest solo exhibition at arcadia missa (london), at first glance could be interpreted as a nod to open-plan fail harder work cultures of recent years, however the term is taken directly from a practice used by some women to induce birth. As put by kristeva, “one does not give birth in pain, one gives birth to pain”. The installation at arcadia missa acts as a one durational piece, an aftermath of privilege (seen online and in part for the berlin biennial). The dominant aesthetic of power and legitimacy are explored and dramatised by ulman, suggesting that the artist’s own ability to express and complain carries its own privilegea position of criticality not accessible to all.

Upcoming for Paris Internationale 2016 Arcadia Missa will present Ulman’s works from Privilege alongside works by Hannah Black.
