THE TATTED SECRETS OF MY GREAT AUNTY MAY – donation to Hobart Women’s Health Center, Australia.


Julia Adzuki works with transformative processes across the fields of visual, relational, performance and sound art. Her embodied enquiry explores underlying frictions of the human-environmental crisis through the sensuous relation of inner and outer landscapes.


Born in 1980 in Beechworth Australia, Julia studied at Victorian College of the Arts, School of Arts in Tasmania and has an MA in Choreography & New Performance Practices from DOCH & Stockholm University of the Arts.


It was a curiosity with ephemeral sculpture that led her to the Swedish Arctic in 2002, where she worked with ice and snow for 7 years. There, in response to a sense of uprootedness, Adzuki made Root Shoes that turned her practice towards performance, film and the somatic movement practice Skinner Releasing.


Through the releasing process, in  collaboration with people with deaf/blindness, Adzuki developed Resonant Bodies; an acoustic instrument from a hollow tree for experiencing the physicality of sound, that has toured art museums in Sweden as part of Kännbart exhibition.


In 2009 she founded SymbioLab together with Patrick Dallard, creating a mobile laboratory for experiential ecology and an ongoing touring project. Together they continue the  work with tactile sound. Julia is a member and initiator of the Ljudtornet artist collective, creating and curating sound art experiences in the old watertower, in Gnesta Sweden.
