Julie Favreau lives and works in Berlin and Montreal. Her works are open stories meant to induce a state of heightened sensory awareness in the viewer – statements for a return to concentration, focus, intuition and tactility.
In her videos, choregraphies, sculptures and photography, she is interested in exploring the erotic texture of the world, the way animate and inanimate things touch and affect one another. Next projects will look at how spiritual and sexual power have a role to play as vital forces in the imminent encounter between the bodies of late capitalism and the augmented human.
Her upcoming shows will take place at the Casino du Luxembourg; Arsenal (nyc); Tropez (Berlin); M.I.T (Boston); Koffler (Toronto) and Galerie im Marstall (Ahrensburg). Recent shows include Will Deliquesce, House of Egorn (Berlin); Blue Star Contemporary (Texas); From Her Character, BF15 (Lyon); Holding Rays, Künstlerhaus Bethanien (Berlin); She Century, Montreal Museum of Fine Arts; Délicat Pulse, Darling Foundry (Montreal); She Century, Edinburgh Art Festival – Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art. She was the recipient of the Pierre-Ayot Award 2014 and Claudine and Stephen Bronfman Fellowship in Contemporary Art 2012. Favreau was listed for the Sobey Art Award 2018.
