Central Saint Martins - UAL
Julie Hill is a British artist who lives and works in London. She works with photography, sculpture and writing to explore astronomical and cosmological representations and the technologies used to construct them. Objects, texts and interventions combine, giving rise to otherworldly scenarios that explore the divide between the objective and the subjective, the real and the imagined. Materials such as smoke and mirrors act as portals, or conduits, between the known and the unknown.
Julie studied at Central Saint Martins and the Royal College of Art and is currently a Fellow at the Royal Academy Schools. Exhibitions include Passen-gers, London, UK (2017); Pokey Hat: VERBureau/Glasgow International Festival, Glasgow, UK (2016); Dimensions Variable, Miami, USA (2012), Guest Projects, London, UK (2012), Single-Shot, Tate Britain, London, UK (2007). She has also made a number of informal 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, Atina, Italy (2016) and The Florence Trust, London, UK (2013–14).
She was awarded funding for her artistic and curatorial projects including Passen-gers, a site-specific exhibition series at The Brunswick Centre (Arts Council, 2016–17), Cartographies of Life & Death, curated for Artakt and London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine (Wellcome Trust/Arts Council, 2012–13) and Crying Out Loud, a platform she co-founded that uses exhibitions and events to explore notions of femininity in contemporary culture (Arts Council, 2012, 2016).
