The ladder´s dance or missing Miranda

The ladder´s dance or missing Miranda
Exhibition in Uppsala Konstmuseum
24 August – 15 September, 2019

Julia Boix-Vives (b. 1970) embarked on her career as a sculptor when she began studying in Grenoble and at the Düsseldorf Academy of Art. Through videos, performance and dance, the sculptures have over time become buoyant and less constrained, balanced between reverie and consciousness. In this installation we step into the artist’s symbolic world of ladders, nets and bodies. The emptiness after Miranda, a gigantic doll that has accompanied the artist in numerous projects and which has evolved into something of an alter ego, is just one of the trajectories. Reflections, reflexes and breathing – the gentle movement of the lungs – is another. Born in the French region of Savoy, Julia Boix-Vives now lives in Eindhoven in the Netherlands. The exhibition will take place in conjunction with the large-format presentation of the artist’s paternal grandfather, Anselme Boix-Vives.
