Ádám Ulbert is an artist and researcher based in Budapest, Hungary. With his artistic practice, he’s mainly interested in how our contemporary ecological sensibility can work as a necessary new mentality, that draws up an enlarged concept of life and nature which stands in contrast to positivist, mechanistic and objectifying viewpoints. Beyond the logic of science that wants to name and categorize, Ádám is mainly interested in the possibilities of non-human narratives of imagination and ‘almost’ fiction. He questions whether if everything is based on and perhaps connected to biology, can non-organic beings be connected to organic bodies through some kind of elastic morphology as well? How could this biomorphic sensitivity become a mode of empathic representation that maps the human connection to other entities?
Ádám has shown his works at the Paris Internationale in Paris, Karlin Studios in Prague, and the Stedelijk Museum Bureau in Amsterdam, amongst a variety of galeries in Budapest like Longtermhandstand, ENA Viewing Space, Pince, Arkatell projectspace and Trapéz Gallery.
