Julie Hill writes narratives that unfold through various media such as photography, installation and sculpture. Sources of fact and fiction act as springboards for mise-en-scène that merge objects, texts and interventions to question the divide between the known and the unknown. Recent work has focused on depicting otherworldly landscapes inspired by scientific cosmology and literature surrounding geology, magic and the cosmos.
Julie studied at Central Saint Martins and the Royal College of Art and has since shown work at Passengers, The Brunswick Centre 2017; Lumen Studios, 2017, 2016; Glasgow International Festival 2016; Tate Britain, Dimensions Variable (Miami) and Guest Projects as well as interventions in communication networks and public space. Her work has been featured in The Miami Rail, The Independent, the Guardian, Artreview.com, IDEA, Aesthetica, NYLON and Modern Painters amongst others. Residencies include Lumen, Italy (2016) and The Florence Trust (2013–14). She has been awarded Arts Council and Wellcome Trust funding for her artistic and curatorial projects including Passengers, a site-specific exhibition series at The Brunswick Centre, 2016–17; Cartographies of Life & Death, LSHTM/Artakt, 2013 and Crying Out Loud, a platform she co-founded that uses exhibitions, events and publications to explore femininity in contemporary culture, 2012, 2016.
