Ursula is one of America’s most inventive and individual artists and this will be her first exhibition in Italy, extending the life and reach of the artist’s major 2014 exhibition at YSP. Curated by Peter Murray CBE, YSP’s Founding and Executive Director, the exhibition will feature monolithic structures meticulously assembled from 4”x4” cedar beams which serve as von Rydingsvard’s blank canvas, a starting point from which she explores psychological and emotional themes. The exhibition will also include two monolithic bronzes and a work in resin which she has cast from cedar. Giardino della Marinaressa is a public park with stunning views across the water to the island of San Giorgio Maggiore. It is located on the Riva dei Sette Martiri, Castello, the main walking route between the Arsenale and the Giardini, and has never before been used for the display of sculpture.
