Uta Kögelsberger is a London based artist working with photography, video installation and sound. Her work develops out of an intense involvement with specific sites where human interactions with landscape become physical and visual manifestations of a society’s ideology and belief structures. Kögelsberger’s practice straddles immersive and critical aesthetics. Recent projects have included Playing the Cave, a response to the climatic conditions in the Lake District; Waiting for Los Angeles, a portrait of the City of Los Angeles; Off Road, an investigation of the notion of freedom in the USA.
Kögelsberger’s work has been exhibited at Bluecoat Liverpool, Spacex, Exter, CGP, Gallery, London, Danielle Arnaud, London, the Architectural Association London, the Barbican, London, and Laurence Miller Gallery, NYC, and the Glassell Project Space MFAH, Houston. She has been awarded the Stanley Picker Fellowship, the Berwick Gymnasium Fellowship, the EAA Award for Art in Architecture and the SPD silver medal for editorial photography. Her photographic essays have been published in Wired, Esquire, GQ and American Photography.
