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.
“I incite blanks, spaces (jumps in the meaning: discontinuities, transitions, changes of key).” -Georges Perec. The synergic relationship between the body and space is central to my work, expressed through sculpture, installation, collage, photography, process-led action, book-form, and drawing. It constantly raises questions. How does the movement of my body affect the space? How am I acted upon by my surroundings? How might even a subtle shift or glimpse alter the space we perceive? And lastly, how might I document those hieroglyphs in two or three dimensions, using object, book-form, and movement? I welcome the fact that my pieces cannot be easily labelled. Working often collaboratively, I adopt theories, scores, and processes from other disciplines, applying them to my open sculptural approach of building, layering and construction: a liminal, fizzing boundary, where various strands meet creating unexpected new work, which is newly sculpted from hitherto unexplored materials.
