>>CV

Julia Carolin Kothe works at the intersection of sculpture, installation, sound, writing and performance. In her sculptural installations and spatial interventions, she explores the connections, discrepancies and tensions of temporal and spatial settings. She is interested in systems of communication between the gestural and the verbal, the physical and the digital, the situational and the auto-generated, the human and non-human, including the relationships that materialise in space and in-between bodies.

 

Her practice evolves in non-linear acts based on research that incorporates elements of personal and collective memory, feminist theory and archival material, with the aim of revisiting and repositioning events that respond to particular conditions of spaces and the bodies within them. The processual nature of her practice breaks away from the notion of a singular, finished work and leads to site specific and contextual modes of display. Her work offers the spectator a spatial, atmospheric, physical experience that constantly recreates itself and casts an unforeseen light on particular environments.
