ARTIST STATEMENT: -
Juliana Cerqueira Leite is a Brazilian/American artist based in London since her BA at Chelsea College of Art in 2001. Primarily a sculptor Juliana’s work sources physicality to investigate the processes by which intentions become form. Through realism, body-horror and currently process art, the state of embodiment, its interactions with the mundane and the sublime, have been driving forces behind Juliana’s practice. Working in sculpture, video, photography and drawing she questions the status-quo between psychological and physical realities as expressed through the object/subject nature of the body. Her most recent works often take the form of direct casts or negative impressions of the artist’s body exploring performance, notions of repetition and menial physical struggle.
