Artist statement

Julie Meyer’s art research deals with the perception of time and space, showing landscapes and cityscapes in movement. Her work, from the areas of photography, video and sound, demonstrates Julie Meyer’s exploration of the connections between the moving and static image, as well as his structural treatment of cinematic and photographic space.

Julie Meyer, photographe et vidéaste investit les intervalles, les vides, dilatant ou accélérant la perception du temps et de l’espace.

In-between landscape

Landscape means a fragment of nature, an open window to the world. Julie Meyer is interested in the photography media because of its capacity of cropping fragments from entity. She uses this tool to collect evidence in a territory. She crosses suburban areas, no-man’s-land and cities’ fringes and documents their boundaries. Following her research, she doesn’t consider the ocean as an empty space but as a territory which connects two harbors. The artists’ route will cross this wide in-between space. The pictures will be the witnesses of their itinerary.

Dans l’histoire de l’art, le paysage se définit par un fragment de nature, une fenêtre ouverte sur le monde. Dans sa pratique, Julie Meyer s’intéresse à la question de l’image photographique comme élément d’un tout, prélevant des traces dans le territoire. L’artiste traverse les périphéries, les zones vagues et les marges des villes, rendant compte des mondes qui les caractérisent. Dans la continuité de ses recherches, l’océan n’est pas considéré comme un vide mais comme un territoire reliant deux ports. C’est la route qui traverse ce vaste “entre-deux” qui sera documentée au moyen de l’appareil photo.
