Ursula Huber was born in Merano, Italy in 1952. She currently works and lives in Appiano in the province of Bolzano.
In 1983, she attended a sculpture and modeling course at the summer Academy of Fine Arts in Salzburg. In 1985, she attended courses in Vienna at the Glass Art Academy and later, in 1986, thanks to a grant, she moved to the USA for a year.
At the end of the 1980s, she participated in numerous international symposia on glass art and had her first exhibitions.
She is known above all as a sculptor, and her works in glass are especially appreciated.
She sometimes uses video to supplement her sculptural work and for more complex installations where the various media interact.
Ursula Huber’s works take off from the essential form of a man’s head – which she has named “Ego” – that is completed by synthesizing the body shape.
With minimalist representations of the human figure, her works depict the conflicts and tensions of contemporary society.
Ursula Huber’s works are found in private collections and international galleries of modern art. She has exhibited at international fairs as well as in one-woman and group shows in Italy, France, Austria, Germany, Denmark and Japan.
