Julie Is a member of the Royal British Society of Sculptors. Her work sits in the gap between sculpture and performance exploring the dialogue the body shares with site.

I define myself as a contemporary sculptor, performer and edge-dweller, who believes in the power of the visibility of the small act to strengthen an enriched sense of self through our relationship with place. I inhabit my practice by constructing movement responses, forms and installations though the careful layering of multi-disciplinary media, using time as an essential element for listening and ‘being with’ each site. The outcomes of my place relationships manifest as poetic assemblages of objects, sculptural installations in a variety of materials including layered film and sound, found and crafted materials, editioned photography or artist publications; all of which typically share a fragile neutral palette animated by vibrant punctuating colour or reflective surfaces drawn from the places themselves. I have been awarded several place-based residencies and commissions including Arabesque (2003) for the Campaign for Drawing where I created three dance-drawing performances at the V&A; Step Feather Stitch (2012) where embroidery patterns were danced, and dance steps stitched; and Traces of the Invisible (2004): a Leverhulme-funded residency of 10 months at The Association of Anaesthetists of GB & I where the story of Sleeping Beauty was read into an anaesthetic machine to create drawn word-breaths, subsequently made into an original artist’s bookwork Rosebud (2004).Works are held in collections including The Yale Center of British Art, Tate Gallery Artists’ Publication archive, The AAGBI, and the University of Kent.
