Julika Rudelius


Julika Rudelius was born in 1968 in Cologne, Germany, and is currently based in New York and Amsterdam. She attended the Hochschule für Bildende Künste in Hamburg, Germany from 1993 to 1994, the Gerrit Rietveld Academy in Amsterdam from 1995 to 1996, and participated in the Rijksakademie artist-in-residence program from 1999 to 2001. Her work has been exhibited in various solo and group shows in Europe. Her videos, usually showing people in "everyday" interactions, are marked by an ambiguity between "staged" and "spontaneous" situations. The works look into social behaviour patterns as well as physical and verbal communication, especially with respect to the question as to how the latter contribute to the creation and reproduction of social hierarchy. This intersects with an exploration of issues of sexuality, including shifting dynamics of sex and power and our cultural need to verbally express sexual detail.
