ABOUT JULIA BELOVA

was born in 1991 Tver (Russia)
based in Vienna/St Petersburg

The main topic of my research is the body. In my sculptures, I operate with an abstract body, exploring it in context of the global concept of intimacy demonstrated by religion. I experiment with religious Baroque aesthetics, by using its particular elements, analyzing those elements and combining them with elements of pop culture and bionics. While creating such a visual collage, I’m searching for hidden or obvious sexuality in a new, androgynous body, by transforming it and making it abstract. I regard the sculpture as a fixed moment of a subjective fragment of reality, expanding its visual perception through tactility.
