American artist Julia Heyward, contemporary of Gordon Matta-Clark, will perform and screen select works from her interdisciplinary practice. This event is organized by Elisa R. Linn and Lennart Wolff.
Since the early 1970s, Heyward has explored language through live performance, photography, film and video and interactive digital works. Heyward employs a variety of vocal techniques, musical styles, and visual spectacles in her work. Her films and performances draw on personal biographical narratives, childhood trauma and themes of faith and spirituality as well as larger societal issues, among them class and gender inequality and environmental rights.
