This sculptural installation is an exploration of biological life, reproduction, growth and the web of entanglement that exists between all living organisms.
Julie Monro-Allison works with weaving and other textile methods to make sculptural forms. She is curious about the nature of the relationships between organisms and the spaces in which they exist, concentrating in her current work on notions of inter-subjectivity, kinship and entanglement in relation to lived-body experiences. In the past she has explored ideas of fear and land, topographies of melancholia, and celestial fictions. Julie has undertaken artist residencies with You are Here, the Inner West Council, Nillumbik Shire Council, Sturt Craft Centre, Vancouver Arts Centre and Craft Victoria, and her work has been shortlisted for the Hidden Rookwood Sculpture and the Woollahra Small Sculpture Prizes.
