Julie Andrée T

Julie Andrée T.’s installations and performance works have been shown in Canada, US, South America, Asia and Europe. She was part of Compagnie PME for several years, an experimental theater company directed by Jacob Wren. She has collaborated with numerous artists, choreographers and directors including Benoit Lachambre, Xavier Le Roy, Dominique Porte, Martin Bélanger and the filmmaker Dominic Gagnon, as well as working with the PONI collective from Brussels as co-artistic-director in 2007. Since 2003 Julie has worked with and performed internationally with the renowned performance group Black Market International.

Some of her major performance/installations in Canada include a series of installation-environments exploring the human body in different constructed environment where weather, architecture and sound co-existed as in Weather Report/Potentiels évoqués (presented at Skol Gallery in Montreal, 2005). In 2007 she created Études d’un phénomène ou l’invention d’un souvenir at Chambre Blanche (Quebec) where she was artist in residence for 3 months. This exhibition was an exploration of the human fascination in weather and natural disaster in the age of spectacle and medias.

For Julie Andrée T., practicing art is a reflection of daily life and the dark ages we are presently in. Body and space are the center of her research. She uses the body as a vehicle for metaphors and poetry, attempting to reach a place where personal identity is lost. Although this is a utopia, it might be the only way to find a common abstract language to understand what we do and who we are.

Julie Andrée T. is currently guest artist Faculty at the School of museum of Fine Arts in Boston (USA) where she is teaches performance art.
