Julie Monot holds a Bachelor’s degree in Visual Ar ts from HEAD in Geneva (2017) and a Master’s degree in Visual Ar ts from ECAL in Lausanne (2019). Her artistic practice is inscribed in different mediums such as installation, sculpture, performance and video. Her research has, among other things focused, on the limit zones of bodily exteriority and its modes of representation. The notion of figure is part of her specific interests, because this notion is polysemic and shifting, but especially, because it allows a figural space, a critique on our social constructions. The accessory of transformation, the costume, the prosthesis, the body “furniture” and its objects in connection with a praxis are part of her daily reflections. Monot previous shows include Cabinet Studiolo, Milan (2022); Fondation Thalie, Brussels (2021); Centre culturel suisse, Paris (2021); Walgreen Windows, The Bass, Miami Beach (2021); Mumok, Vienna (2021); L’Arsenic, Lausanne (2021); La ferme de La Chapelle, Genève (2020); La Becque, La tour de Peilz (2020)
