Collage, Booth 519
Julia Campisi is a Toronto based artist who has displayed work both locally and abroad in magical places like New York, Riyadh, and Amsterdam. With an interest in the use of photographs and the history of femininity, Julia explores symbols, embellishments and body positions that led to the construction of the female self. She pays particular attention to the elements that were present both in the past and in our present, juxtaposing them to create a humorous narrative that re-articulates our cultural history. The work focuses on this crafted body language of “female” that is rendered in a fine lace-like collage style further drawing attention to the age of feminine ‘craft’.
