b. 1989, Adelaide.
Lives and works in Adelaide.
Julia McInerney’s practice centres around the combined application of the literary order of words and the sculptural order of physical materials. The dialogue between these two languages is aimed to manifest variations of a third language that is suspended between these two, that is distinct from those that allowed for its origination, yet which at the same time continue to support its existence. The title and material description of each work are intended to perform key roles in this process.
Julia McInerney is an Adelaide based artist, graduating from the Adelaide Central School of Art with a Bachelor of Visual Art (Honours) in 2011. Her work is concerned with the ambiguous poetry of objects and materials, often drawing upon ideas and themes from Modernist literature. Julia has presented exhibitions at Greenaway Art Gallery (SA), Constance ARI (TAS), Bus Projects (VIC), the Contemporary Art Centre of South Australia’s Project Space, FELTspace (SA), and Konstfack University College of Arts and Crafts, in Stockholm, Sweden. Julia has undertaken residencies at Fire Station Artists’ Studios in Dublin, SIM (The Icelandic Association of Visual Arts) in both Reykjavik and Berlin, and Artspace in Sydney.
