Micha Ullman

Born: 1939, Tel Aviv

Ullman creates subterranean sculptures, some of which barely protrude from the ground. They touch on universal themes such as the meaning of place and home, absence and emptiness. They have been described as simultaneously "celestial and earthbound, metaphysical but sensual and tactile." Ullman's project, "Land Exchange," was to dig up a cubic meter of soil from his village and one from the neighboring Arab village and exchange them. In 2012, Ullman’s works were shown at MOCA’s ground-breaking exhibition, “Ends of the Earth: Land Art to 1974.”
