Julie Favreau

Julie Favreau’s practice, located at the crossroads of visual art and choreography, is based on inventing gestures out of objects (sculptures) or, conversely, on inventing sculptures out of gestures. Recent works induce a state of heightened sensory awareness in the viewer, inviting concentration, focus, and intimacy. Favreau has presented/performed her work in many contexts including exhibitions, festivals and performances on stage. In 2011 she was part of the MACM Québec Triennial. Recent awards include: Pierre Ayot Prize - AGAC City of Montreal,The Claudine and Stephen Bronfman Fellowship in Contemporary Art and a nomination on the long list for the Sobey Art Award. In residence for three years at the Montreal studios of the Darling Foundry, she is working on a new creative cycle that includes sculptural propositions, video and photographic works for various sites: Gallery 44 (Toronto), Edinburgh art festival - Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art (Scotland), Battat Contemporary and Darling Foundry (Montreal).
