Broke and on the edge of eviction, Leo and her mother bond over their misfortune as they scheme, bluff, and grift their way to a stylish lifestyle beyond their means.
Amalia Ulman, born in Argentina (1989) but raised in Spain, studied Fine Arts at Central Saint Martins in London. Her works blur the distinction between the artist and object of study, while exploring class imitation and the relationship between consumerism and identity. In addition to video, sculpture and installation work, her multidisciplinary practice has involved the use of social media, magazine photoshoots or interviews as tools for the fabrication of fictional narratives. Excellences & Perfections was archived by Rhizome and the New Museum (New York) and exhibited at the Tate Modern and Whitechapel Gallery (London).
