JULIA CAROLIN KOTHE
New website coming soon...
Julia Carolin Kothe’s artistic work moves between different media, materials and (collaborative) formats - at the crossroads of sculpture, text, sound, choreography and performance.
Her work responds to the particular conditions of the exhibition space and emerges within different acts, chapters or rhythms. The processual nature of her practice breaks away from the notion of a singular, finished work. Instead, her work offers the spectator a spatial, atmospheric, physical and psychological experience, casting an unforeseen light on particular environments and contexts.
She explores the (im)possibilities of communication between digital and physical spaces in relation to bodies such as those of the audience, performers, the artist herself and objects. She explores and constructs changing roles and relationships within shifting scenarios. In auto-fictional performances and texts, she reflects on making and the uncertainty associated with it. She speaks about intimacy as well as fragility and creates seductive as well as subversive states. In her texts, historical women* figures overlap with the artist’s inner life and biography.
