Julie Brixey-Williams’ research focuses on the relationship which the body shares with space, interpreting it through site-based installation, photography, performance, book form, and gestural drawing.

Statement June 2018
I am a cross-disciplinary artist whose work sits in the space between sculpture and performance, with an interest in how this space is activated by movement to create a conversation between the body, the objects within it and importantly the place. From this starting point, I explore the body’s dialogue with architecture and site, through performative intervention, calligraphic gesture and sculptural inscription. I layer and construct, happily lost in the gap between disciplines, often poaching and re-contextualizing approaches from a variety of practices, in order to re-site them into another one sphere: a tactic of investigation I term, “misreading”. Adopting this interactive, playful, somewhat subversive approach opens the doors of possibility and a source of new material forms.

Alongside my personal practice, I work collaboratively with Dr. Libby Worth and the multi–disciplinary collective point and place. These relationships have generated a variety of pieces including a dance-for camera film Passing Between Folds (www.fold-dance.weebly.com); a double-bound bookwork (winner Birgit Skiold Award 2007 London Book Art Fair www.pointandplace.net) and a hexagon game for creative interaction (www.pointandplacegame.com).
