Born and raised in Brazil, Júlia Brandão works primarily in textile, installation, and performance. Her multidisciplinary practice questions the body in relation to displacement and memory. In creating paintings and sculptural pieces with repurposed fabric, her work investigates the limits and possibilities of the female body in the spaces it inhabits. Reflecting upon the conception of ‘home’ not only as a physical space but also as an imagined one, a mental place of identity, Brandão's work is a representation of the threshold across and in between borders. Her work has been presented at NARS Foundation (New York), Jane Lombard Gallery (New York), Galleri Silk (Sweden), Galeria Sé (São Paulo), Galeria Quadra (Rio de Janeiro), among others. Brandão currently lives and works in Portugal, where she is doing her MFA in Sculpture.
