Sweeping the Wall

Julia Boros

09 January 2016–30 January 2016

Soft textiles ability to reference the corporeal is explored through the diaphanous plastic film as it gently caresses the wall. Constantly readjusting itself and in combination with available natural light, the surface lustre creates an illusion that the wall is alive.

Pockets of air form and gradually disappear. Crinkles ripple and shift alluding to skin, breath and visceral forms. The sensual materiality of the new wall surface allows experience of the gallery atmosphere and air as a medium. These temporary qualities and manifestations endow the installation with the ability to address opposing forces of containment and freedom.

Sweeping the Wall is a wall-based installation. It consists of floor to ceiling lengths of transparent industrial textile on all the walls of the gallery. Periodically throughout the duration of the installation it is necessary for the artist to re activate the static film through the action of sweeping the wall with a broom.

Implementing her experience of traditional and experimental printing and production methods Julia explores textile manipulation. A background in theatre and film influences the performative aspects of her process.
