Julie Pereira's work deals with the cyclical nature of growth, decay, and erosion, and the way in which time seems to mysteriously contract and expand. Much of her art transcends its material properties taking on a life of its own. In one body of work, she suspends massive walls of layered paper from the ceiling and then burns intricate organic shapes into the paper creating deep fissures. We’ll discuss this and other works during this podcast.
We spend a good deal of time towards the end of the podcast discussing Jorge Luis Borges' story “The Garden of Forking Paths” as it pertains to Julie's series, From a Pool in the Floating Garden of Yamata-no-orochi. This series can be found here: http://www.juliepereira.com
