Ursula Schulz-Dornburg at McEvoy Foundation For The Arts

Rituals of Devotion, March 10 – May 27, 2023

Ursula Schulz-Dornburg’s ‘San Esteban de Viguera, Spain (Light from the East),’ 1991–1992, is on view at The McEvoy Foundation for the Arts in the exhibition ‘Rituals of Devotion’, on through May 27.

In the KQED review, Shelby Sohn writes:

“Ritual is deeply connected to religion and spiritual gathering sites — where we forge feelings of divinity through worship, sometimes based on thousands of years of tradition. In San Esteban de Viguera, Spain (Light from the East), a series of gelatin silver prints, Ursula Schulz-Dornburg reveals an isolated sanctuary along a pilgrimage route from Barcelona to Santiago de Compostela.

Schulz-Dornburg’s photographs are taken from inside as light passes through the domed building’s window like a cosmological force. The images insinuate a passage of time — both historical time and the time Schulz-Dornburg spent taking photographs. It’s eerie to see a period of so many years condensed into one moment.”
