Ugly Duckling Presse


Ellie Ga‘s projects explore the limits of photographic documentation and span a variety of medium, often incorporating her exploratory writing and culminating in performative lectures, videos and installations. After an artist’s residency in the archives of the Explorers Club in New York, she spent the winter of 2007-2008 as the artist-in-residence aboard the Tara, a scientific expedition in the Arctic Ocean. Her work from the expedition has been exhibited recently at Galerie du Jour, Paris, Subject Index at the Konstmuseum, Malmö, Sweden and Storyteller at Projekt 0047 in Oslo, Norway. She has performed The Fortunetellers at Museo D’Arte Contemporaneo, Palermo, Sicily and in New York City at MOMA/PS1 Contemporary Art and for the Edifying series at The Bruce High Quality Foundation University. Her artist’s books are in the collection of MOMA, NYPL and Yale University. Ugly Duckling Presse has published her books Classification of a Spit Stain and Three Arctic Booklets.
