Julie Peter (born 1985) is a danish artist with a triangular base between Copenhagen (DK), Berlin (DE) and Hjørring (DK). Her works explores the absurd in the normal through objects, moods and spaces, whose ironic distance is left as dreaming comments to the norms of everyday life.
Her works sometimes emits a cold and latent violence and a seductiveness, based only on personal associations and formal analogies, which urge the audience to make new personal contextualizations. Directly responding to the surroundings she uses everyday experiences as a starting point, to sculpture the moments that underlines the human drama.
The work confront the binaries we constantly make between Self and Other, between our own ‘ruffian’ and ‘educated’ selves. She finds that the contradictions between believe and behavior expose an implicit awkwardness, a humor that mirror our own vulnerabilities.
Julie Peter has a Master of Arts from Weissensee Academy of Fine Arts in Berlin, and a BA from the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts.
