Land of Ulro is collaborative project of three artists, Rimantas Plunge, based in Kaunas in Lithuania, Davide Skerlj, based in Trieste in Italy and Josip Zanki based in Zagreb, Croatia. Project is based on reading of utopian space of Land of Ulro. Concept of Land of Ulro was created in William Blake imaginary. Ulro is a god Urizen empire, place of living dead, idols and miraculous illusions. In his book Land of Ulro Czesław Miłosz recognized this imaginry space in real places which exist out of dominant political and national narratives.
