The work refers to recurrent themes in Ulla von Brandenburg’s practice, such as the occult, magic, theatre and the trompe-l’oeil. Featured here is the sphere or crystal ball which in the world of sleight-of-hand and magic, is used to conjure an atmosphere of enigma and illusion. Von Brandenburg’s figure draped in striking colour blocks seems to be an abstracted contemporary and female variation on the illusionist with his floating ball as he was depicted in prints from as early as the 17th century.
